Jeanne Bock, who has directed the Panhandle Health District since 2001, will retire this fall after 24 years of public health service in Idaho’s five northern counties.
The Board of Health accepted her retirement notice Thursday and plans to hire her successor by August.
Bock led the health district during a time in which it helped end a decades-old practice of residents discharging household waste directly into Shoshone County’s Canyon Creek. That achievement resulted from from a collaborative effort involving the health district, the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, Shoshone County commissioners and Burke Canyon residents, a health district news release said.
