The three members of the Goshen Board of Health are elected for overlapping three year terms.  The board works closely with the Health Agent on all matters of Public Health.  The Health Agent is responsible for all technical aspects of septic and well designs, installations and inspections.

To fulfill its duties, the Board of Health develops, implements and enforces health policies, oversees inspections to maintain minimum standards for sanitation in housing, food service and septic system installation, and assures that the basic health needs of the community are being met.
