The Sturbridge Board of Health (BoH), like all local Boards of Health in Massachusetts, is required by state statutes and regulations to perform many duties relative to the protection of public health including the control of disease, the promotion of sanitary living conditions and the protection of the environment from damage and pollution. This is accomplished through the inspection of food establishments, public accommodations (hotels/motels/inns), housing, pools and beaches; the investigation of communicable diseases and nuisances; and the oversight of solid waste management and recycling. Many of the board’s responsibilities are also coordinated with housing and plumbing inspections and the department of public works as well as other regional and state agencies.
The board meets the first and third Mondays of each month, typically at the Center Office Building 301 Main St., 2nd Floor at 7PM. The BoH agenda and meeting locations are posted on the town main page under town news in accordance with the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law.
