EH April 2018 summary:

EH manned a booth at the Ice and Events Center Home and Garden show. Attendance was down but we were available for information on Public Health issues and programs.

2018 West Nile Virus Emergency Insect Management Grant committee meeting met and grant approved with a reduction in funds.

Both property conveyance and septic programs remain strong with a slight uptick in commercial septic permit applications. Several new developments are opening up.

Two EH specialists recently completed Pool Operator Certification training.

Six CLCHD staff were trained in driving the Mobile Response Unit through a cone course set up at the Archer complex and all participants performed well.

More plans have been coming in for future food service establishments. Indications are that the economy is moving in a healthy direction.

A new oil and gas pipeline will be passing through the Eastern third of Laramie County which will bring more jobs and improve sales tax numbers.
