Jackson County Health Dept. Cutting Hours Due to Lack of State Funding

The Jackson County Health Department is reducing their hours due to the ongoing budget crisis within the state. According to a release from the Health Department, starting on December 1st, hours will be cut back, including closing on Fridays. Mondays and Tuesdays will be extended to make up for the Friday closure, but at this time it has not been stated how long. The Department says the cut is in direct response to the current lack of a working state budget.
