Millis Board of Health is comprised of three elected citizens that assess and address the health needs of the Millis Community. The Health Department implements and oversees the policies and regulations as mandated by the Board of Health, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. Our mission and responsibility is the protection of the community, through health promotion, surveillance and permitting activities. The Board issues permits and annual licenses that include: Retail Food, Restaurants, Temporary Food, Drinking Water Wells, Septic System permits, Septic Installers and Haulers, Trash Haulers, Hazardous Waste Permits, local Environmental Health Impact Regulations, Beaver Permits, Camps and Body Art Establishments. The Health Department also addresses concerns of air quality, noise, housing issues and insect control. The Millis Public Health Nurse, in addition to seasonal flu vaccinations and blood pressure screening, conducts communicable disease reporting and other issues that affect the public's health. The Health Department is also active in Regional Medical Reserve Corps and Emergency Preparedness for the community.
