About the City-County Health Board
The Board of Health is the policy-making body that determines the goals, objectives, and programs for the delivery of public health services to Missoula residents, both city and county. The Board has statutory authority and responsibility, including rule-making and adjudication, as well as budgeting authority. The Board is responsible for selecting the Health Officer, who carries out statutory duties and directs the health department.
