Report on establishing a Health Department





The City Council requested that the staff gather information relating to the possible creation of a City of Lee's Summit Health Department. Staff has conducted initial research into the issue and will be presenting the following:


Comparison of Missouri Municipal Health Departments

Overview of potential scope of services

Cost comparison based upon levels of service and population

Authority to create Health Department

Funding Sources

Process for creation


Based upon this information, the City Council will need to provide direction as it relates to whether or not to establish a Health Department and if so what level of services that Department would provide. 



Staff will be seeking further direction from the City Council based upon this information.
