Walker approves technical fix to health department law
April 25, Wisconsin Health News

Gov. Scott Walker has approved a technical fix to a law aiming to ease mergers between local health departments.

A law approved in 2016 helped Washington and Ozaukee counties merge their health departments by allowing two methods of preparing a budget.

But that law complicated matters for North Shore Health Department, which serves Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills, Shorewood and Whitefish Bay and uses other methods to prepare its budget.

The bill allows the governing body for a multiple jurisdiction health department to prepare a budget in whatever manner participating entities want.
