Sale of Floyd Memorial Hospital
There are many issues facing Floyd County; bad roads, urban blight, rapid growth, a failing jail, and lack of business opportunities, to name a few. With the sale of Floyd Memorial Hospital more than $131 million will be available to solve many of these issues and I vow to work tirelessly to insure these monies are wisely and prudently spent and properly invested for future generations.
Currently $1.5 million is earmark to the County’s General Fund in order to balance the budget. While this is a prudent move we must insure the County doesn’t rely on these monies to balance future budgets. Failure to adhere to a stringent budget and relying on “Hospital” monies will only cause this once in a lifetime opportunity to be wasted.
