Hospital board to make bond votes official

GREENVILLE — The Hunt Memorial Hospital District Board intends to make the results of last week’s bond election official, during a special session later this week.

The board is scheduled to canvass the votes from the November 5 balloting when it meets at 5 p.m. Thursday in the Homer Horton Jr. board room on the sixth floor of the Hunt Regional Medical Center, 4215 Joe Ramsey Boulevard.

Local voters approved more than $12 million in bonds for the Hunt County Municipal Hospital District (HMHD), which will go toward paying for three major capital improvement projects; one each in Greenville, Commerce and Quinlan.

A total of 2,138 voters cast ballots in favor of the bond proposition (56.82 percent), with 1,623 votes against (43.18 percent).

The hospital district was seeking voter approval of $12.3 million in bonds to pay for three major projects. The third floor of the Hunt Regional Medical  Center in Greenville will be completely renovated at a cost of $2.7 million. Commerce will receive a new $5 million outpatient facility while a $4.5 million facility will be added to the current medical pavilion in Quinlan.

The bonds are expected to be paid back over a 20 year period and will increase the HMHD property tax rate by .0181 cents.
