You pay taxes for Hood County residents-They pay ZERO for their district

Ray Reynolds Says that Pecan Family Medical Center FOR Pecan Plantation residents, not Somervell County

One of the local citizens asked about this at the Sept 29, 2016 public hearing on the tax rate. Below is a compilation, partially edited of both her question, Ray Reynold's answer and what he said at the budget meeting a week or so ago.  So WE are paying taxes for a clinic that exists within the boundaries of Hood County's hospital district. How much tax does a Pecan Plantation resident pay for their hospital district (Hood County) ? ZERO. How much are YOU paying to support a clinic that is not in our district, is behind a gate, and, as Reynolds says, exists FOR residents not of Somervell County but Pecan Plantation. gee, your taxes just went up. 

As a side note, the argument is made that if it wasn't for Pecan Plantation, we in Somervell County might be paying even more taxes than we already are. This skirts the question of whether it is even LEGAL to operate a private clinic that is not for public use within the boundaries of a different hospital district. The last board raised the question, including Ray Reynolds himself, about needing to get an intergovernmental agreement in order ot operate IN ANOTHER HOSPITTAL DISTRICT (gosh knows that they kept tabling any effort to FIND OUT from the Texas Attorney General if this is legal.) Nothing has been done, and the new board also apparently is happy with skirting the law. 

One time when I went out to Pecan Plantation, and wasn't allowed to go in, the guard at the gate told me I should be happy that Pecan Plantation was paying for our hospital, that I should be grateful. Gee, as I've said before, I guess I should have gotten down on my knees and called out "Oh, THANK YOU THANK YOU KIND SIR for allowing me to pay taxes for you". Since Pecan Plantation revenues are being hidden in a different budget category and since the doctors sure aren't making money, except for one, it's pretty hard to say for sure whether the premise of PP making money is even true. But even if it made a bazillion bucks, so what! It looks illegal as hell, maybe we should go sell crack cocaine, since I hear the profits are good on that one, if the only criteria is whether something makes money and not whether it is legal or not. 

What gets me personally is how complacent people are about spending OUR tax money for the benefit of golfing community members that live in a different hospital DISTRICT. How many of these people pretend they are ethical while turning a blind eye to this?
