County Council projects budget surplus by June, 2010 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 30 September 2009 00:00
    The Washington County Council held a public hearing on the proposed county budget for 2010 on Wednesday evening, September 22; all members were present.
    Once it was determined that no one was present at the hearing who wished to offer public comment or ask questions about the proposed budget, the Council elected to discuss issues still unresolved in the proposal.  The final 2010 county budget will not be a approved by the Council until the latter part of October at which time it will be forwarded to the Indiana Department of Local Government finance for state approval.
    During the financial discussions, Council President Mark Manship asked County Auditor Sarah Bachman and Deputy County Auditor Michele Fleenor for a summary of projected income and expenses for the county through June of 2010.  After working with the numbers, many of which were, admittedly, estimates based on previous years, it was determined that the county should have funds of at least $575K over and above all anticipated expenses by mid-2010
    Several Council members noted that there are still some unanswered questions about the final cost of the truck bypass to the east of Salem and what, if any, money the county will be expected to pay as a result of the hospital bankruptcy and Medicare overpayment.  Both of those issues have price tags that could eat up the potential surplus and even leave the county with a negative balance.

     Over the past two years, local optometrist, Dr. Jack Hedrick has become very familiar with the inside of Washington County Memorial Hospital. He’s undergone testing and been treated for several different ailments including a stroke, atrial fibrillation, cervical spine problems and hernia repair.
    “I’ve always had a physician in Salem,” said Dr. Hedrick. “I choose to stay in Salem because of the convenience. Dr. Morgan is my doctor and I’ve always had outstanding care from everyone who has treated me at the hospital, from the nurses, aides, lab and X-ray technicians to anyone else who has helped with my care, I’ve always had a positive experience.”
    Dr. Hedrick’s medical visits began two years ago when Dr. Khan began treating him with a series of epidural blocks for his neck. “I had gone to a pain management physician in New Albany and had blocks previously, but they didn’t work. It was a very bad experience, so I was skeptical about trying again. Luckily, I could tell a huge difference after the first treatment. I was elated; he really did a great job.”
