Board of Health

The Board sets policy for the Health Department, takes action on permits, and hears appeals of enforcement actions. The Board typically meets on the 4th Thursday of the month at 3:00 p.m. but meeting dates should be verified by contacting 978.538.5926, or visiting the Health Department webpage. Materials for Board of Health meetings should be submitted to the Health Department no later than 14 days in advance of the meeting date.

Appeal Procedure: The permit holder/applicant should submit a written request to the Health Department requesting an appeal.  The request should reference the specific code which is being appealed.  Additional specific procedures vary depending on which code is being appealed; applicants should contact the Health Department for additional guidance.
