Two members of the Davis County Board of Health resigned this week, citing time con-flicts between their jobs and board meetings.
Leaving the board are Blaine S. Taggart, Clearfield, a restaurant owner, and Stephen D. Romney, Kaysville, who went to work at Hill Air Force Base.The board Tuesday morning also voted to forward to the county commissioners the nomination of a Bountiful woman to replace Julia B. Wright, whose term expires next month.
The single applicant for Wright's board seat is Charmaine Halberson. Bountiful. She has a background in education and is the wife of a child psychologist, according to board chairman Dr. Richard K. Wallin.
The health board members for-warded a recommendation to the county commission to name her as Wright's replacement and invited other county residents to apply for the vacancies created by Romney's and Taggart's resignations.
The board also decided to contact the Davis School District and request a district representative sit on the board since many of the health department's programs and concerns are centered on schools and school-age children.
The board traditionally has tried to maintain a balance in its membership, representing all geographic areas of the county, both medical and non-medical interests, and, by state law, a bipartisan membership.
Applications are available through the health department in the Davis County Courthouse, 451-3337.
