    Pullman Regional Hospital’s Board of Commissioners will host public hearing to explore expanding the hospital’s taxing district

     

    Pullman, WA—On Wednesday, the Pullman Regional Hospital’s Board of Commissioners voted to move forward with holding a public hearing on Wednesday, June 2nd at 6pm to explore expanding the hospital’s taxing district to coincide with Pullman School District boundaries.

     

    The expansion under consideration would include 1,670 voters in the Pullman School District boundary who are not in the hospital’s current taxing district. If it becomes a ballot measure, only those 1,670 voters would vote on the expansion measure.

     

    The recommendation to consider expanding the hospital’s taxing district boundaries was made in January 2021 to the Board of Commissioners based on feedback, community surveys and public hearings during the 2019 attempts to pass a bond campaign.
