Voters Approve Creation of Graham Regional Medical Center Tax District
In Graham, the proposition to make a hospital tax district passes today.
That means residents in Young County and Graham ISD will have to pay a bump in annual property taxes.
The measure passed by 140 votes.
The increase will not exceed 75-cents on each $100 valuation of all taxable property in the district.
In fact, hospital officials say it might be half that, at 37.5-cents per $100.
The Graham Hospital Board says it's in need of extra funds and this increase will generate more money.
These results still need to be canvassed by the Young County Commissioners.
