BOARD OF HEALTH OF FULTON COUNTY | Print |

Board Established by: County

Description:
Effective April 27, 2016, the Georgia General Assembly enacted House Bill 885 (“H.B. 885) to repeal O.C.G.A. 31-3-2.1. This was the statute that authorized Fulton County to operate an independent County Board of Health and Wellness. HB 885 also provides that the existing Fulton County Board of Health and Wellness will remain in existence and operable, and its board members shall remain in office, until Fulton County consitutes a new independent board of health which will operate similar to others boards of health throughout the state (i.e., O.C.G.A. 31-3-1 et seq.). With the formation of the new BOH, Fulton County’s public health functions and responsibilities will fall under the purview of a newly constituted independent BOH whose members must be appointed pursuant to the process outlined herein.
