Funding Could Soon be an Issue for the Starke County Health Board

When WKVI asked Starke County Health Board member, Brenda Stanojevic, about funding, she said that Health Officer Dr. Theresa Alexander told the Board that funding will be a problem, but they should make it through.

The question was raised because the fee for a septic permit has decreased from $200 to $60. Dr. Alexander said she going to a meeting to find out ways to keep the office solvent.

Dr. Alexander said, “At some point, funding is going to raise its ugly head and we’re going to have to keep on top of it.”
