Meeting Dates
The Monthly Board Meeting is held on the 2nd Wednesday at 12:00 p.m. at the Delta County Hospital, Board Room B, in Delta.

History
The Delta County Meth Task Force was started in July of 2006 by a small group of committed public servants and community members, under the leadership of County Commissioner Wayne Wolf. The impact of local meth use, addiction and production placed significant demands on the financial and community resources of the county due to the need for increased law enforcement, probation supervision, incarceration, criminal court cases (including prosecutors and public defenders), child protection services, treatment providers, emergency preparedness, environmental clean-up, community education resources and more.
