Geneva, Ala. (WDHN)—Geneva County residents will decide on a local health issue this November.
Recently, the county commission approved a request from the Wiregrass Medical Center in Geneva to place the issue on the presidential ballot.
The measure would raise the current millage rate of 2-point-6 to 4-percent.
It would annually raise an estimated 200-thousand dollars for the hospital.
Wiregrass Medical is one of the county’s largest private employers with more than three-hundred workers.
Geneva County Probate Judge Toby Seay says the commission has “not” taken a stand on the issue.
The ballot is simply a way to allow residents to decide whether Wiregrass Medical Center should receive an increase in revenue.
