Sec. 19a-202. (Formerly Sec. 19-75b). Payments to municipalities. Upon application to the Department of Public Health any municipal health department shall annually receive from the state an amount equal to ninety-four cents per capita, provided
such municipality (1) employs a full-time director of health, except that if a vacancy
exists in the office of director of health or the office is filled by an acting director for
more than three months, such municipality shall not be eligible for funding unless the
Commissioner of Public Health waives this requirement; (2) submits a public health
program and budget which is approved by the Commissioner of Public Health; and (3)
appropriates not less than one dollar per capita, from the annual tax receipts, for health
department services. Such municipal department of health is authorized to use additional
funds, which the Department of Public Health may secure from federal agencies or any
other source and which it may allot to such municipal department of health. The money
so received shall be disbursed upon warrants approved by the chief executive officer
of such municipality. The Comptroller shall annually in July and upon a voucher of the
Commissioner of Public Health, draw the Comptroller's order on the State Treasurer
in favor of such municipal department of health for the amount due in accordance with
the provisions of this section and under rules prescribed by the commissioner. Any
moneys remaining unexpended at the end of a fiscal year shall be included in the budget
of such municipal department of health for the ensuing year. This aid shall be rendered
from appropriations made from time to time by the General Assembly to the Department
of Public Health for this purpose.
