RPH votes to reinstate Tremmel

The Board of Health met in executive session at their regularly scheduled meeting on Oct. 19 voting to retain and reinstate Martin Tremmel as the Health Commissioner for Richland Public Health.

Tremmel was placed on paid administrative leave following his arrest that stemmed from an alleged physical altercation with his wife on Kelley’s Island on July 11.

The Board expressed their thanks to Dr. Daniel Burwell for his leadership during his time as Acting Health Commissioner, assuring that the important day-to-day work of the health department was maintained.
