Board of Health


Appointed by the Town Manager, the 5 member Lexington Board of Health acts as an advisory and oversight Board to the Lexington Public Health Division.

In addition, the Board of Health is held responsible, (under various Massachusetts General Laws), for disease prevention and control, health and environmental protection, and for promoting a healthy community. Lexington Board of Health members frequently reference Massachusetts Department of Public Health and Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection protocols.

The Lexington Board of Health develops, implements, and enforces local health regulations, oversees environmental health inspections to maintain minimum standards for sanitation in housing and food service, and assures that the basic health needs of their community are being met.
