County residents view hospital addition design at town hall

More than 50 Chase County residents attended the town hall meeting for the new hospital addition on Tuesday, in addition to more viewers on Facebook Live.
Ryan Baker took care of audio for the night as well as streaming the town hall on Facebook Live, where he fielded questions at the end.
Led by Chase County Community Hospital (CCCH) CEO Steve Lewis, residents got to see the plans for the addition as well as cost estimates and examples of how the bond would affect their taxes.
Chase County Commissioners approved the $20.5 million hospital bond election prior to the town hall. The bond will appear in a mail-in only ballot election in May.
All registered voters in Chase County will receive a ballot that will be mailed out beginning  April 22.
The ballot must be returned to the Clerk’s Office by 5 p.m. on May 14, according to Chase County Clerk Debbie Clark.
Clark said the bond needs only a majority vote to pass.
The ballots can be turned in via mail or in-person.
Other presenters at the town hall included Zella Goettsch of Adolfson & Peterson Construction, J.D. Dreyer of Davis Partnership Architects and Andy Forney from D|A Davidson.
