Grand jury investigates environmental health department

Monday, Aug. 17, 2015 — The Lassen County 2014-2015 Grand Jury investigated the Lassen County Environmental Health Department as a matter of public interest, not because of a complaint. According the grand jury’s report, it’s required by law to “investigate and report on at least one county department each year.” The grand jury interviewed the county administrative officer, the health and human services director and the environmental health director and specialist. The grand jury also received a power point presentation on the entire Health and Social Services Department, reviewed its budget, mission statement and a list of programs administered by environmental health.
