Kitsap Public Health Board

Our seven-member Kitsap Public Health Board is our governing body. They have broad legal authority and responsibility to protect the community's health and to enforce a variety of local, state and federal laws and regulations. They select and oversee our leadership, work with us to set our policy and priorities, approve our annual budget and enact health policies through new, local public health regulations when the need arises. This diverse group of county and city elected officials shares a passion for public service that contributes significantly to the health and well-being of our community.
