We should be thankful that we have a new administrator over at the county hospital.
According to a notice recently published in the Times their tax rate for next year will not go up from last year.
Because of increases in property values as well as new construction in the last year the hospital will still collect $1.7 more in property taxes than they did last year.
From what we can see he has made significant cuts to payroll costs this year.
Some may argue that the decision was not difficult in light of the high spending that the previous administrator imposed on us.
Still, this new administrator is not like the city that is thinking about raising their tax rate to the maximum value they can without letting the voters have a say and then adding significant fees to our garbage and utility bills.
This is better
