Carson City and Douglas County Public Health Regional Partnership
Carson City Health and Human Services developed and implemented a CJS arrangement to deliver environmental health services to neighboring Douglas County. The effort included a detailed communications plan for Carson City employees as well as Douglas County business owners affected by the change. A branding strategy also was implemented to reflect the new city-county program. In addition, the project team developed a CJS model and implementation toolkit for neighboring jurisdictions that might be interested in pursuing similar agreements.
