In a continuous effort to improve the health and quality of life of Mason County residents, the Mason County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution Tuesday forming a Mason County Housing and Behavioral Health Advisory Board. Todd Parker is with Mason County Public Health:

This advisory board will need to create a report containing recommendations on funding priorities and present it to the Board of Commissioners by January 31, of each calendar year beginning in 2019.

The County is now seeking applicants to sit on this advisory board from the following sources:
One County Commissioner, designated as Chair, voting in case of a tie;
One City Council Member;
One Board of Health member that is not a county commissioner;
One representative from a social services funding organization; and
Mason County resident, not employed by Mason County, but not to exceed one resident per district.

Those interested in applying for the Mason County Housing and Behavioral Health Advisory Board will need to file out an application. Applications are available on the County’s website: www.co.mason.wa.us or by emailing tparker@co.mason.wa.us.¬†Applications will be accepted until June 30, 2018.
