The board also left the tax rates the same as last fiscal year.
The rates are 6.5 cents per $100 property valuation for real estate, and 8.5 cents per $100 property valuation for motor vehicles and water craft.
The rates will bring in $231,895 from real estate, $52,866 from motor vehicles and $12,085 from motor vehicles and water craft.
Other money matters
In other money matters, the hospital got a $50,000 rebate on a CT scanner because it had been used in training by Shimadzu Co. before the hospital bought it. The actual cost is $423,000.
A resolution was approved for the hospital to participate in the self-insurance unemployment plan. Tungate said the plan is cheaper than other plans since the hospital only has to pay for current claims. He said the hospital qualifies for the plan because it is a non-profit entity.
Clay Hoskins, a contractor hired to remodel and build an addition to the Primary Care Center, said the holdup in starting the project is getting a state building inspector to approve the plans. He expects that to be done soon.
The board agreed to make a temporary road off Sanders Street during construction to keep the street clear while work progresses.
In other matters, Tungate said that 1,385 people had blood drawn at the annual Health Fair.
This was an increase of more than 200 from the previous year.
The blood tests that regularly cost $300 were given for $12. The estimated attendance was 2,000 - up 500 from last year. The 29 booths at the fair provided health care educational information.
Tungate said the Health Fair keeps growing each year. "One person drove down from West Virginia to attend the fair," Tungate said.
The board also set its meeting time at 7 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month.
