Guess What.. I STILL do not agree with Somervell County taxpayers paying for clinic in Hood County's hospital district

6 May 2019 at 7:38:38 PM

and P.S. What Somervell County Hospital District is doing by opening up for profit clinics outside district territory looks blatantly illegal. 

Minutes from the 3/28/2019 Somervell County Hospital District 

I believe this is a dereliction of the duty of every board member currently sitting. And it is crooked as hell for them to do it WITHOUT making sure it's legal. 

P.S. As an example of an attorney general opinion, here's one from Kansas regarding much the same situation. 

In summary, we make the following conclusions. The board of county commissioners has the authority to establish a county hospital and an additional hospital or clinic under the Hospital and Related Facilities Act. Under current law, such hospital or clinic must be located within the territorial boundaries of the county. The title for the property of the hospital and clinic is vested in the name of the county where they are located. The board that operates and manages the county hospital cannot use hospital moneys to fund directly a clinic located outside the territorial boundaries of the county where the county hospital is located. The board also is limited in the types of hospital moneys that it can transfer to a not-for-profit corporation and must first determine if such transfer is in the best interests of the hospital and the residents within the county that the hospital serves

It might be that the Texas Attorney General would issue an opinion saying "Hey, go ahead and spend Somervell County tax money all over the state even though you swore it was only in Somervell County". But the Somervell County Hospital Board is either too cowardly or is knowingly breaking the law hoping they aren't held to account. We should do better and it would take only about 6 months to get an opinion IF THEY VOTE TO ASK FOR IT.
