The latest round of layoffs at the Chelan Douglas County Health District has claimed the agency’s director of environmental health. . .
Health Board member, Ken Stanton says the agency’s chief administrator, Barry Kling will now take on Marquis duties which include restaurant inspections and permitting. The Health District will also lose one of its Information Technology directors for a total cost savings of about 190 thousand dollars in salaries. . .
I talked with Stanton about the layoffs and how continuing state and federal budget cuts have threatened public health services. You can hear that interview on Wednesday’s KOHO Morning Show with Clint Strand.
