The Town of Redding is looking into the possibility of joining a regional health district. First Selectman Julia Pemberton says they're doing some research and are in touch with the Town of Easton about their process, and what the expense was to join the new Aspetuck Health District. Easton recently joined Weston and Westport in a merged health district. Pemberton noted that Redding has partnered with Bethel in the past on H1N1 drills and COVID-19 vaccinations. Redding officials want to see what improved services could be offered to residents by joining together with other towns. Pemberton says it's not just public health that the employees deal with, they also take on sanitary services, restaurant inspections, and water pollution control among other responsibilities. She says this is all very preliminary.
