The ‘quiet fight’ against COVID continues, adding to the $18+ million in unplanned expenses and lost revenue. As our community ages and more people rely on Medicare, which pays far less than commercial insurance, the gap widens.
Thanks to the tremendous community support, the new Tax Levy will, starting in May 2022 provide some much-needed funds for competitive salaries and to replace outdated technologies, but there are other urgent needs.
