Rockland: Health Agent Resigns

A Rockland Health Agent has resigned.

Selectman Mike O’Loughlin posted a notice on his Facebook page saying that Health Agent Janice McCarthy has tendered her resignation.

O’Loughlin says that on Wednesday Town Administrator Marcie Birmingham and Human Resources Director Stacy Callahan were informed that there was a question regarding inspections in food establishments being performed in a timely and/or consistent manner.

Board of Health member Scott Margolis was informed of the situation and the Town Administrator immediately contacted the Town’s attorneys, John Clifford and Jaime Kenny.

McCarthy resigned Thursday following an investigation which was undertaken by the Town Administrator, Human Resources Director and the Town’s attorneys.

O’Loughlin says the “Town Administrator and Human Resources Director are working with the Board of Health and their staff to take immediate action to bring the Town into compliance with regard to inspections of food establishments.”
