Our thanks to the Haywood health board

Written by 

To the Editor:

Tuesday night (Aug. 10) the Haywood County health board voted to table the amendment (for 90 days) to the health rule that would have allowed for a Class 1 misdemeanor in cases of health rule violations. Many of the citizens of Haywood County applaud your decision.

The process has gone on for several months. Many citizens have been involved in every stage of the amendment process and at public hearings. The health rule was being called to a vote on Tuesday … just as more facts were coming to light. This decision will allow for further discussion on the issues that still concern citizens … without slowing up the health board on all other actions that they are charged with addressing.

Thank you to the Health Board for taking this course of action. Thank you for your service to Haywood County.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
