Revenue is low due to not receiving <br />operating transfers from the County or the quarterly payment from the City. Since this report the County <br />money has been received. Developmental Disability spending is low, but we are focusing on getting back <br />on track. This is State money and if it doesn't get used the County doesn't receive it. <br /> <br />David Specter discussed the vaccine spoilage loss that occurred when a refrigerator door was <br />inadvertently left open. The Health Department is working with David Goldsmith, the Risk Manager to <br />submit a claim for reimbursement. The Health Department is looking into ways to keep it from <br />happening again. <br /> <br />David Specter reported that the following issues were discussed at the Public Health Affiliate Meeting: <br />.. The State of Washington has filed a lawsuit against eight major tobacco companies and are asking <br />Boards of Health to write letters of support for the lawsuit. Jefferson County receives State Department <br />of Health money for tobacco prevention programs and may be contacted by the State, at a later date, to <br />write a letter of support. .. Bremerton/Kitsap Health District's proposed initiative to introduce <br />legislation that will allow administrative search warrants for public health entities. These warrants would <br />still be issued by the Courts but would be for public benefit not a criminal reason. ..
