Is the hospital district attorney telling it like it is?

Are the Somervell County Hospital District lawyers misleading the board members and the public?

I did not attend the special hospital district board meeting today because I was working but I had heard their lawyer, Kevin A. Reed of the Reed, Claymon, Meeker, & Hargett PLLC, was telling the board they could not call an election unless they had a petition. I will be getting a copy of the audio to verify the facts here but in the meantime I have put in a request to ask the lawyer if he did indeed misspeak, or if someothat is his interpretation of the Texas Health and Safety Code. To be specific the code is as follows: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/HS/htm/HS.286.htm#286.102

Sec. 286.102.  DISSOLUTION.  (a)  A district may be dissolved as provided by this section.

(b)  The board may order an election on the question of dissolving the district and disposing of the district's assets and obligations.  The board shall order an election if the board receives a petition requesting an election that is signed by a number of residents of the district equal to at least 15 percent of the registered voters in the district.

(c)  The election shall be held not later than the 60th day after the date the election is ordered.  Section 41.001(a), Election Code, does not apply to an election ordered under this section.

(d)  The ballot for the election shall be printed to permit voting for or against the proposition:  "The dissolution of the __________ Hospital District."  The election shall be held in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Election Code.

(e)  If a majority of the votes in the election favor dissolution, the board shall find that the district is dissolved.  If a majority of the votes in the election do not favor dissolution, the board shall continue to administer the district, and another election on the question of dissolution may not be held before the first anniversary of the most recent election to dissolve the district.


Added by Acts 1991, 72nd Leg., ch. 14, Sec. 121, eff. Sept. 1, 1991.

Stay tuned for an update to this post as we find out more...

11/19/2013 - The lawyer confirms our assertion that they can call an election when they want regardless of whether a petition exists or not. He also does not recall being asked about an election without a petition so as of today we see no wrongdoing. Still waiting on the audio to see what was specifically said to cause everyone to think this...

Ditto on the Shame On Them All. You do have to wonder, who represents the dang taxpayer? It ain't the hospital district attorneys, for sure, but then, those people are out to make a good buck from hawking health law solutions. (How much are they charging for this?)
