MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Board of Health Wednesday approved the purchase of a dental chair for the Community Health Center. The purchase of the $9,556.35 chair will allow the center to create a new “operatory,” or work station, and expand the services offered by the dental hygienist.

Two hirings were approved. Brandy Moore, an administrative assistant, was hired, effective Feb. 26, and Melissa Valentine, a licensed professional counselor was hired for the Health Center, effective March 5.

Three memorandums of understanding were approved.
