Since the creation of the Council, the Public Health Department has always played an important role by providing an efficient scavenging service thus ensuring a healthy environment. Furthermore, it is one of the departments that contributes largely to the income of the Council through the issue of trade lee receipts and collection of fees for markets / open fairs. Other activities under this department comprise of:
- Maintenance and upkeep of cemeteries and cremation grounds;
- Environment upgrading;
- Processing application for trade fees.
All services are monitored by the Chief Health Inspector, with the support of one Principal Health Inspector and one Senior Health Inspector who supervise five Health Inspectors
