Fremont Public Health Vital Statistics Honor

Vital Records staff members Virginia Stacy, Christina Bass, and Linda Leggitt are pictured with Public Health Director Rick Miklich displaying their Five Star Performance Award from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

The staff at the Fremont County Public Health Department which administers the Vital Records section was honored by the Board of County Commissioners last week after being notified the office had scored a perfect audit score for 2014.    Public Health Director Rick Miklich said Fremont County Public Health’s Vital Records staff was one of only four county offices in Colorado to receive a perfect audit score last year.

Fremont County Commission Chairman Ed Norden said the honor is particularly noteworthy since the Public Health Department resumed management of the county’s Vital Records less than three years ago in March, 2012.    He noted that the move of the Public Health Department to the county’s Garden Park building on North 6th Street in Cañon City will provide the staff with a much more spacious and secure setting for administering birth and death records for Fremont County.

The Five Star Performance Award was presented to the Public Health Vital Records staff for earning a perfect score on their 2014 audit.
