Harford County Executive Bob Cassilly has announced $750,000 in supplemental funding for staffing for the Harford County Health Department, in addition to providing new technology to modernize their permit process.

“I am pleased to have signed an agreement between Harford County and the Health Department that will share the County’s e-permit software with the Health Department,” County Executive Cassilly said. “This technology will provide a streamlined process for residents and business owners to apply for permits and interact with the Environmental Health Division of the Health Department, which issues permits related to wells, septic systems, and food service establishments, for example.

I extend my thanks to the hardworking staff of the County and Health Department for their efforts to provide improved customer service, and to Council President Pat Vincenti for his support for this partnership.

In addition to these technological upgrades and to further the partnership between the County and the Health Department, I have submitted an amendment to my proposed FY 24 budget of an increase of $750,000 in funding for the Health Department to provide additional staffing to support the work of the Environmental Health Division.”
