Hospital Report – “Millage Extension is Not a New Tax” – Local Coverage Criticized by JP – Other DMH News

August 21st, 2012 by

DMH CEO Mike Layfield addressed the Quorum Court, Monday night, and emphasized “the misconception that proposed millage extension has been referred to as a new tax.” 

The Quorum Court last month approved the hospital board’s request to hold a special election on October 9 to ask county voter’s to approved the continuation of the existing hospital millage to be used to help fund the new Surgery Center, which is estimated to employ an additional 25 employees.  Layfield compared performing surgery in the current facility to “driving a 35 year old car.”Supporters of the millage extension will be visiting interested groups and organization to discuss the proposed extension. 

JP Jimmy Potter also criticized a local editorial calling the proposal “a new tax.”  It was also commented that the October 9 election will not be paid for by the county.

In other DMH business, the 501c3 rollover is in progress, and will take effect on Oct. 1.

Layfield also updated the group on his recruitmet of a second surgeon, and told them that Dr. Julia Nicholson is now seeing patients at Monticello Medical Clinic.

    Millage is what determines the tax rate for your house and land or any real properties that are in your name. Not approving this extension will bring the cost of our taxes down. Any time we can reduce the tax rate is a good thing.
