The Grays Harbor County Commissioners have accepted the proposed Public Hospital District’s boundaries, as it was presented by petition. With a “nay” vote from Commissioner Wes Cormier who had proposed an Aberdeen-Hoquiam-Cosmopolis district, the commissioners accepted Herb Welch’s motion to accept the originally proposed boundaries. They then adopted a resolution to put the issue on an August 5th ballot. Split 5 ways, the proposed taxing authority would have 7 elected commissioners total, two at-large.
Commissioner Frank Gordon added signup dates are the 14th through the 16th of May “so let’s get hustling and find some people.”
The county is looking for 7 candidates for the inaugural board, if the district is approved by the voters.
