Volunteers needed for health district

The Central Nevada Health District seeks volunteers to form the Food Protection Hearing and Advisory Board.

This board will provide oversight if a food service facility disputes the decision of the Environmental Health program. The goal of the FPHAB is to help ensure the district’s Environmental Health program is meeting the needs of the local food industry regarding compliance and enforcement actions.

The voluntary FPHAB will be a District Board of Health-appointed seven-member advisory board, two of which (at least) will be representatives from the local food industry and the remaining five members will be considered based on their willingness to make a difference within our communities.

Three members of the FPHAB will be appointed for a one-year term, three for a two-year term, and one for a three-year term.

Meetings will only be scheduled when formal requests for appeals/waivers are received and will not occur more frequently than monthly.

Residents and business owners in Churchill, Pershing, Mineral and Eureka counties and the City of Fallon are eligible to apply for the advisory board and can do so via the online application:
