Board of Environmental Health - About Us

The Board of Environmental Health (BEH) consists of five members, who serve without pay, appointed by the mayor and confirmed by Denver City Council. The Board is the local board of health for Denver. Their primary functions include adopting rules and regulations, reviewing requests for variances from department laws and hearing appeals of decisions of the department manager, and otherwise assisting the department in developing policies. They have five-year, staggered, terms. The board meets at 5:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month. Agendas and minutes along with rules and regulations adopted by the board are available on the BEH website or by calling (720) 865-5484.
