‘Bi. Raphael B. Levine, Director
Comprehensive Area Wide Health Planning

. Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc.

1000 Glenn Building

Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Dear Dr. Levine:

Thank you for your letter outlining the organization and function
of the Metropolitan Atlanta Council for Health.

As you know, the Fulton County Department of Health is the official
agency for health matters affecting the City of Atlanta and, normally,
programs involving health and health planning would be the responsibility
of the County Health Department as far as the City of Atlanta is
concerned, I understand, however, that the Comprehensive Area-
wide Health Planning Program which will be carried on by the new
Metropolitan Atlanta Council for Health will involve area responsibility
for developing policy and all the broad aspects of health including
environmental sanitation, water pollution, etc.

Since the City of Atlanta does have major responsibility for production
and distribution of potable water and for collection and disposal of
solid waste and also sewage treatment and disposal, I can understand
why the City of Atlanta should have a representative on the Health
Council. Since both the Sanitation Division and the Water Pollution
Control Division fall within the area of responsibility of the Public
Works Committee of the Board of Aldermen, I am asking Alderman
G. Everett Millican, Chairman of this Committee, to represent the
City on the Council,

Sincerely yours,

Ivan Allen, Jr.
