Health, Environment and Social Services

The Health, Environment & Social Services Committee advocates for mental health services, sanitation and refuse collection, environmental concerns including sewer maintenance and repair, air pollution, toxic waste, and liquor licensing issues. The committee is also responsible for matters concerning social services, the disabled, the homeless, and senior citizens.

Except for holidays and other conflicts, the committee usually meets at 6:00 pm on the first Wednesday of the month, September-June. Any person wishing to attend a committee meeting is encouraged to confirm the date, time, and location on the community board’s calendar.

Agendas, minutes, and reports may be viewed or downloaded on the District's Public Drive.
