Chance to comment on proposed cuts to health services

Due to proposed reductions in El Dorado County Health Department services, a meeting will be held Friday for public comment on the South Shore.

Services in jeopardy include pregnancy testing, birth control, women’s breast and pap exams, and child health exams.

The meeting is from noon to 1 p.m. at Lake Tahoe Community College in the Duke Theater.

The formal public hearing is at 2 p.m. April 1 at the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors chambers in Placerville. The South Shore meeting gives individuals the opportunity to share their views if they cannot attend the formal hearing.

If cuts are approved, implementation will begin July 1.
