Leesburg, VA (July 24, 2017) – Recently, the Town of Leesburg and Loudoun County agreed to work cooperatively to address health-related nuisance issues within the Town limits. Among other things, the County’s Health Department inspects and investigates conditions that may adversely affect public health, to include rodent or insect infestation outside of a home that becomes a menace to the public’s health and safety.

“Under this new memorandum of understanding (MOU), the Loudoun County Health Department will assist Town staff in responding to complaints from Town residents that require the expertise of Health Department staff,” says Leesburg Mayor Kelly Burk. “For issues such as hazardous substances, unsanitary disposal of garbage, or other conditions that are dangerous or unhealthy and constitute a menace to the health and safety of the public, the Loudoun County Health Department will investigate and take enforcement actions as necessary.”

"I am grateful for the quick work of the Leesburg Town Manager and Town Attorney to work with their counterparts in the Loudoun County Government to make sure that the citizens of Leesburg receive valuable health and safety inspection services when needed,” says Leesburg Town Council Member Ron Campbell who championed the effort.
