June’s quarterly Board of Health meeting began with the swearing in of two new board members and the passing of the gavel for the chairman’s position.

Outgoing chairman Rooster Cogburn gave the oaths of office to the board’s city appointed member, Rhoda Finley, and Gray Mayor Stephen Tingen at the June 4 meeting.

Cogburn had a few parting comments to the board and then welcomed the new chairman, Dr. Kara Moore.

He suggested that the new members and chairman review the guidebook for Board of Health members and explained that Dr. David Harvey is the director of the North Central Health District and the chief executive officer of the local board.

Cogburn asked about dental services from the health department, and Moore said the service is a need for Jones County. She said few dental offices take Medicaid.

The outgoing chairman expressed concern about the financial records being handled by the district and stated that Jones County’s records have been handled by its office manager. Harvey said the district record keeping is suggested, not required, and it would be up to the board to decide at a later date. He said the move is another part of the accreditation process.
