The sanitarian who handles dog bites in Belpre does work for the Athens Co. Health Dept. Belpre contracts with Athens and the sanitarian is in Belpre one day a week. Belpre is not that big of a city, it would be pretty expensive to have a sanitarian on the job 5 days a week. Just like their nurses. They come form Marietta and are in Belpre on Fridays.
