The Putnam County Board of Health has three new members. The Putnam County Sentinel reports the Putnam County District Advisory Council made the appointments Monday in the wake of three resignations. Lita Siefker, Kyle Stechshulte, and Carrie Knippen will all serve five-year terms.
They take the place of three people who stepped down after the District Advisory Board decided to keep Matthew Herman on the board of health.
Ohio Revised Code requires the board to have a doctor on it, however the current makeup the health board in Putnam County does not include a physician. Sherrie Recker is the director of nursing. She says they have reached out to most of the doctors in the county, but none have wanted to serve on the board.
