The Putnam Board of Health is working to get things back in order. Members met for their first meeting Monday evening since Kanawha County took over earlier this summer.
Board members put steps in place to restructure the department. Six directors from the Kanawha County Board of Health explained services they will provide to Putnam County residents and elected a new chairman.
"This health board has a great opportunity of starting fresh, allowing the Kanawha Charleston Health Board to assist us while we clean house and get our ducks in a row again," said Chairman Bryan Escew.
Kanawha County is still looking for a permanent location in Putnam.
