Responsibilities & Services

The THD's overall role is to protect and promote the public's health through people, prevention and partnerships. As a local health agency, our responsibilities include the enforcement of the Connecticut Public Health Code and mandated services as prescribed by CGS Section 368e (municipal).

  • Local health agency ordinances and regulations may be more stringent than the State's mandates, however they cannot be less stringent or in conflict with state regulations and statutes.
  • Town charters and local board of health by-laws may include for provisions of services that exceed the basic public health program.
  • Local health agencies have the legal authority to levy fines and penalties for public health code violations, and to grant and rescind license permits (such as for food services establishments or septic systems) and to establish fees for their services.
