The Galveston County United Board of Health (UBOH) sets polices that protect the everyday health and well-being of county residents through an interlocal agreement between member governments and follows bylaws.

The board consists of five members nominated by the Galveston County Commissioner’s Court and ratified by a majority of member cities. Board members serve two-year terms, after which they are renewed or replaced.

UBOH conducts business in regularly scheduled monthly meetings in the boardroom of the Mid-County Annex, located at 9850-A Emmett F. Lowry Expy. in Texas City.
