Hospital Sales Tax

If a half-cent sales tax referendum passes next week in one Panhandle county, the revenue will be used to build a new Jackson Hospital in Marianna.

In addition, nearly 15-percent of the annual revenue will go to Campbellton-Graceville Hospital.

Hospital administrator Jimmy Rigsby says the approximate $330,000 will go toward construction of a new health care facility.

Rigsby says the current 43-year-old building is dated and many Northwest Jackson County residents go to new and re-modeled hospitals in nearby Dothan, Chipley and Bonifay.

Rigsby have been campaigning to get the half-cent sales tax approved by voters next Tuesday.
