Hospital Taxing District Proposal Speeding Toward Public Vote

The effort to create a hospital taxing district in Fayette County got off to a quick start this week.

Fayette County Commissioners held a special meeting on Monday, April 8, concerning the petition to create the taxing district. The only item on the agenda was to schedule a hearing to consider the petition.

If approved, the petition would trigger an election to create the hospital district. The petition proposes a property tax of ten cents per $100 value, which would generate approximately $3 million a year. Proponents say the funds would secure the financial future of St. Mark’s Medical Center in La Grange.
