County Commissioners shape proposed Public Hospital District #2, heads for August ballot

Proposed Public Hospital District #2 in Grays Harbor

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.

Grays Harbor County Commissioners hosting public hearings on Public Hospital District

Grays Harbor Community Hospital

Grays Harbor County Commissioners are holding public hearings this week on the formation of a public Hospital District. Two hearings today start at 2pm and 5:30pm in the Large Commissioner Meeting room in Montesano followed by two more at 9am and 5:30pm on May 7th, also in the meeting room.
Commissioner Wes Cormier reminds voters that “the creation of a public hospital district may only be initiated by the public through the petition process, and did not arise from the county or County Commissioners.”
The question is likely heading to the August ballot.
