Hospital Levy Falling Short Of Approval

It’s beginning to look like the maintenance and operations levy for Grant County Hospital district two may not get enough votes to pass. As of Wednesday the levy which would raise property taxes 25 cents per $1,000 of assessed value is just short of the 60 percent needed to approve the measure. If the levy passes the $875,000 raised would go toward renovating Quincy Valley Medical Center. Another ballot count update is expected to be released Thursday.
