Supes Keep Public Health Lab Work In-House

Revisiting discussions last spring, the supervisors voted to not outsource Public Health’s laboratory operations to Pacific Diagnostic Laboratories. The switch would have cut 13 jobs and saved the department more than $1 million annually. Last year, the supes asked Public Health to look at ways to reduce costs, and the department has since slashed expenses by $225,000.
