One group recommends a proposed sales tax question to support the Nevada hospital


The group “Citizens United to Strengthen our Hospital” recommeds the city council place a half cent sales tax on the August ballot. It would help support the city owned Nevada Regional Medical Center. Committee members say the hospital faces $1.5 million in bond servicing every year for the next 12 years.

The proposed sales tax is estimated to cover about half of that. The proposal will face a second reading and final council approval at the May 21st meeting.
