Van Buren and Cass Health District board members offer verbal reprimand to director
VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Weeks after the I-Team uncovered rising tensions at a health department in charge of two counties in our area, we have an update.
Two high-ranking officials are now being reprimanded.
Sources tell Newschannel 3's I-Team the Van Buren and Cass Health District board members are verbally reprimanding both the Health Director and Deputy Health Director.
It all happened during a closed session of a meeting Tuesday afternoon.
Newschannel 3's I-Team was first to report early in August about accusations of hostility faced by the Health Administrator Jeff Elliott.
The health board had been considering spending thousands to improve morale at the health district.
Elliott defended his actions when the I-Team asked him about low morale back in August.
