LANCASTER - A Lexington law firm will assist Garrard County Fiscal Court in the closing of Garrard County Memorial Hospital, and the transfer of assets regarding the hospital and the Long Term Care Facility - but only if the county attorney needs them to.
"I will be handling the county's interests in the winding down, unless it gets in areas where I don't have expertise," said County Attorney Jeff Moss.
The firm of Gess, Mattingly, and Atchison will be paid between $125 and $200 an hour for their services. The county will be billed monthly for legal services and expenses.
Moss said the county has not necessarily hired the law firm, but he said they are there to handle litigation on an "as needed" basis.
