The Essex Regional Health Commission (the “Commission”) was established in 1967 as the Suburban Municipal Air Pollution Commission for the sole purpose of air pollution control. It was and still is a consortium of municipalities which together formed a regional health commission. Through a joint agreement with member municipalities, it is an exemplary model of shared services, offering cost efficient, regional programs working in close coordination with local health departments of Essex County. From each of the thirteen currently participating municipalities, an appointed Commissioner serves on the governing body. The governing body, or Board of Commissioners, functions as a local board of health pursuant to NJSA 26:3-83.
