GOSHEN — A recent decision by county officials puts the leadership of the Elkhart County Health Department in an uncertain position going into 2021.

The Elkhart County Council on Saturday voted to let the health department pay a recruitment firm $30,000 to help search for a new head officer. Current Health Officer Dr. Lydia Mertz will retire at the end of December.
