Galion Community Clean-Up Day Helpful for Public Health

The Galion City Health Departments’ nuisance program seeks to eliminate unsanitary conditions in the community that pose potential hazards to public health. Public health nuisance conditions often result from the improper storage and/or disposal of solid waste, or the accumulation of solid waste on premises.  In addition to drawing insect and animal pests, unsanitary premises may have old tires and watertight containers that give mosquitoes stagnant water in which to breed.  Unsanitary properties may pose a potential threat to public health, cause blight in a neighborhood, and in severe cases can affect the values of nearby properties.
