Environmental Health is a very important part of the health and well-being of our community. The Environmental Health Protection Section provides services that help make sure the basic ingredients of a vibrant community - its land, food and recreational waters - are safe and healthy.
Clay County Public Health Center also inspects lodging establishments through a participation agreement with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
The Environmental Health Protection Section investigates complaints concerning a suspected food illness or other conditions at food establishments, permitted swimming pools, failures of individual sewage disposal systems, lodging establishments and standing water breeding mosquitoes. Complaints may be reported directly to the Environmental Health Protection Section at 816-595-4350.
