Health Department/Board of Health

Questions for the health agent? Please e-mail the Central Massachusetts Regional Public Health Alliance at [email protected].

The presence of local boards of health in towns and cities across the state allows for a more grass roots effort in overseeing the public health in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. While many of the laws and regulations the Board of Health enforces are determined by the State, the Board also has the ability to develop regulations and take actions that they deem are uniquely beneficial to the health of the residents of Holden.

In a town such as Holden, the Board of Health undertakes the
responsibility of overseeing many facets of public health. The Health Agent handles the daily issues that arise, including communicable disease reporting, inspections of private septic system installations, trash and recycling collection, and any other issues that concern the public health of Holden residents. The three-member Board meets monthly to discuss any concerns and develop policies or regulations to protect the health and wellness of residents..
The Board of Health strives to coordinate with local, state, and
national government and safety officials to provide the best
assistance and most up-to-date information possible to Town of
Holden residents. Residents with any health-related questions or
concerns should contact the Board of Health office.
