Since 1983, the Ottawa County Board of Health has presented Awards of Merit to those licensed operations in Ottawa County which have maintained a high degree of sanitation and safety.

This annual award signifies a high level of concern by the operators, not just for meeting the rules and regulations, but in providing an operation that exceeds the minimum requirements.

The awards program, unique to the state, has developed into “healthy” competition among the operators and has proven to be beneficial not only to the health department, but to the residents and visitors to Ottawa County.
