L.A. Times Editorial Urges County Supervisors To Seek Stakeholder Input on Health Department Consolidation
A Los Angeles Times editorial calls the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors' plan to consolidate three health departments -- Health Services, Public Health and Mental Health -- into a single agency "encouraging." However, it notes that "the board should work to make sure stakeholders in the mental health and public health fields, and the public at large, have adequate opportunities to study and offer comment on the proposed changes."
