Doctor needed on county health board

State law requires at least one member of the board to be a licensed medical professional who is either an MD (Doctor of Medicine) or a DO (Doctor of Osteopathy). Interested physicians may contact the Health Commissioner, Pamela Butler, at 419-352-8402.

Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner will nominate a new part-time fire chief at the next city council meeting on Aug. 25, according to a memo obtained by The Press.
