Franklin County commissioners are considering a request for a three percent, or $2,700 increase, from Southeastern Idaho Public Health for next year’s budget, which will take effect Oct. 1.
Maggie Mann, director of the agency based in Pocatello, visited with commissioners recently about the request. She said Franklin County received up to $300,000 in annual funding through the agency for the Women, Infant, Children (WIC) program. This is the second-highest figure of the seven counties served in southeastern Idaho.
Commissioner Scott Workman said he believes the health agency is providing a great service in Franklin County.
