Health and Human Services
The Melrose Health and Human Services Department promotes the personal and environmental health of the community through education and policy development supported by enforceable regulations, and collaboration with other people and organizations.
Our goal in the public health sector is to protect and promote health. The Melrose Health and Human Department offers a wide variety of services and functions for the City of Melrose to accomplish just that. The services range from a variety of topics, including, but not limited to, vaccinations, health permits and applications, informational sheets, healthy eating and living activities, pest control, dropbbox information, and more.
Board of Health's Role
The Melrose Board of Health is the policy-making, rule-making, and adjudicatory body for public health in the county or counties in its jurisdiction. State legislature give boards of health specific powers and duties. The Melrose Board of Health may make local public health rules that apply throughout the board’s jurisdiction. The board also influences the day-to-day administration of the Health and Human Services Department.
Please help make Melrose a healthier, safer place!
