Consolidated Agency

Graham County Dept of Public Health is a consolidated agency. While there are several different "types" of consolidated agencies, the Graham County Commissioners chose to assume the powers and duties of the board of health. The former eleven member board of health is now the health advisory board. 

For a complete explanation of consolidation reference the Coates Cannon Blog.
