Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Clay County Public Health is hoping to join forces with other counties.

Today, they signed a resolution to merge with Becker, Otter Tail, and Wilkin County Boards of Health.

They would become one Community Health Board called "Partnership 4 Health..." making it easier for health departments to share resources across borders.

Kathy McKay- Public Health Administrator: "We've had some success with the other counties. The four counties have worked collaboratively on projects and there has been some success. So, we decided to be a bit visionary and cutting-edge and look at formulating a broader community health board."

The other counties still need to make a decision before the agreement becomes final.
