Charlotte County Florida - Proclamation

Whereas, pleasant, efficient, health care facilities are essential in Charlotte County's ability to successfully promote and protect the health and safety of all its citizens; and

Whereas, four of the six Charlotte County Health Department facilities as well as the homes of many of its staff members were destroyed by Hurricane Charley in 2004; severely inhibiting delivery of public health services to the citizens of Charlotte County; and

Whereas, the Florida State Department of Health immediately mobilized staff and resources from around the state to help Charlotte County Health Department restore and maintain essential public health services; and

Whereas, today, Charlotte County Health Department continues its recovery process of rebuilding, remodeling and relocating its facilities, thereby increasing its ability to provide high quality public health services for the community.

Now, therefore, be it proclaimed that on January 20, 2007, the Punta Gorda facility of the Charlotte County Health Department is officially re-opened and ready to meet the public health needs of Charlotte County citizens.

Passed and duly adopted this 13th day of February, 2007.
