The Health Department of Northwest Michigan Board of Health is seen during a Feb. 7 meeting. The board held a special meeting on May 15 to approve finances.

CHARLEVOIX — In the wake of a rift over a school nutrition grant, the Health Department of Northwest Michigan’s Board of Health held a special meeting to approve their finances on May 15. 

After their regular monthly meeting on May 2 was adjourned when commissioners could not agree on an agenda, the board was able to hold a special meeting this week to unanimously approve the department’s bills and employee expenses. 

Unlike the proceedings of the May 2 meeting, all board members were in agreement on the May 15 agenda and subject matter. 

The large turnout and dissolution of the meeting on May 2 were the result of board members’ disagreement over a grant that would have funded training for school food service directors and staff on the use of local produce in public school cafeterias.
