News : Wright Memorial Hospital Offers Proposal To Grundy County Commission
Posted by Randy on 2014/7/2 3:40:00 (469 reads) News by the same author

Wright Memorial Hospital Chief Executive Gary Jordan Tuesday morning offered a proposal to Grundy County Commissioners that potentially could end a tax dispute involving the physicians’ group building at the new hospital in Trenton.

Jordan said he is willing to allow two years of escrow funds to be released to taxing entities If the county abates taxes for 2014 and beyond.   The hospital paid under protest, tax funds for the years 2012 and 2013.   Those funds are held in an interest bearing escrow  account by the Grundy County Collector-Treasurer.   The hospital has appeals pending with the Missouri State Tax Commission which has not acted on either one. 

Jordan told commissioners, on behalf of the J-B Wright Memorial physicians’ group, that he wants to work with the county and avoid making appeals every year.   Another concern expressed by county and hospital officials is the expense for legal research and representation as needed.  

Jordan stated he also wants a tax exemption regarding the hospitals’ physician building since it’s “a non-profit” and all doctors there are employees of the hospital.   Figures provided by Collector Treasurer Barb Harris show Wright Memorial paid under protest, local taxes totaling over 69 thousand dollars in each year: 2012 and 2013.   IF the county accepts the proposal, only a portion of the escrow funds from each year will be disbursed to the taxing entities with the balance returned to the hospital. 

That’s because those payments were based on a lower assessed valuation of one point three million dollars.   (paid amounts $69,870 in 2012 and $69,789 in 2013) Commissioners Rick Hull, Gene Wyant, and Joe Brinser are to be visiting with Missouri Association of Counties lawyer and with County Assessor Kathy Veatch to determine a response, regarding the proposal from the hospital. 

On another subject, registered voter verification was made for 13 of the 15 signatures on a citizens’ petition requesting the closing of Southeast Sage Lane in Jackson township.  The commission scheduled a hearing October 7th.  The dead end road intersects with Southeast 10th Avenue.
