Beaumont-By: Jennifer Gordy
In the event of a bioterrorist attack, public health officials in Beaumont want to be as prepared as possible.
Public Health Director, Sherry Ulmer, went before Beaumont City Council today to discuss the importance of having private medicine and vaccination sites, in addition to public sites.

Council members adjourned to closed session to discuss a proposal by Jefferson County Commissioners involving a hotel and water park adjacent to Ford Park.
