The Wood County Health District Advisory Council will meet again later this month after a quorum failed to appear Thursday.
The group needs to name a new president and secretary, as well as make several appointments; however, a quorum of at least 23 members was required to conduct business, and only 16 were present.
The District Advisory Council is made up of the president of the Wood County Board of Commissioners and representatives of the county's cities, villages and townships. The council primarily makes appointments and recommendations to the board of health and reviews its annual and special reports.
Action that was scheduled for Thursday will be attempted again March 28 following a meeting of the Wood County Township Association.
Council members met at the last township meeting in January, but the prosecutor's office will need to determine whether the meeting was valid, said Linda Holmes, an assistant prosecutor with Wood County's civil division.

PERRYSBURG - When Mindy (Killgrove) Harris gets time to sit down and write, she considers it break time, time she can spend with the characters she creates.
Harris, of Perrysburg, has authored the first two books of her "Missy Lawrence" trilogy and hopes to have the third written this year.
"I was pretty lucky that I was able to do that and was pretty lucky it's something that comes naturally," she stated.
Harris, who uses her maiden name Killgrove for her books but her married name Harris elsewhere, also is a first-year senior English teacher at Penta Career Center.
SDLqI would love to be a full-time writer. That's one in a million. But I won't quit my day job. I love teaching," she said.
She's been teaching for 10 years, first in Charlotte, N.C., and most recently in Ravenna.

Whether it's a hostage situation or an armed suspect, Wood County Special Response Team members are the ones called out to protect and serve when the situation gets especially dicey.
And now they've got a new weapon in their arsenal. It's bigger than the Batmobile, but just about as tough.
The Wood County Sheriff's Office, which houses the SRT, is now the home of a new MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle to replace the SRT's 31-year-old transport.
"This is the most safe vehicle the team could ever have," said Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn. "And safety is number one."
The vehicle, built on an International truck chassis, is technically on loan from the U.S. Army - it had formerly seen duty during a tour of Afghanistan, where it was used as a communications vehicle. A 2008 model, it has 7,000 miles on it, and comes to the Sheriff's Office at no charge via a program from the military's Law Enforcement Support Office. The vehicle itself cost the military about $650,000.

PEMBERVILLE - Village Council Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution urging the Eastwood Board of Education to maintain an elementary school in the village.
The district is considering consolidating and locating its elementary schools into one building on the Sugar Ridge Road campus with the high school and middle school.
During its Feb. 18 meeting, Council Member Randy Rothenbuhler estimated the loss of Pemberville Elementary would cost the village an estimated $10,000 annually in income tax and the loss from utilities is estimated at $17,500 a year.
Council Member William Long questioned if the resolution was the best way to present the village's support for the school.
Council Member James Opelt said the resolution was a starting point to inform the board of council's position and at the same time indicate support for the school system.
