“The hospital has requested us to help pay cost on the bond … We just got this information recently and we need some time to digest the information,” said Neal Hammack, county commission chairman.
County Administrator Casey Burkhalter concurred with Hammack. “They’re requesting the payment of the bond, but I think we need to do a little more investigation on it before we make that decision,” he said. Since last week’s meeting, EMH has been informed that commissioners will not sign a resolution at this time.
