It would be so refreshing in Moffat/Craig that contracts being handled in a open and honest procedure (for a change). We need to have these contracts, bids, “slap you on the back deals”, be transparent, and open for all the payers of these projects to review and make comments. However, I truly believe those who pay the bills are being keep in the dark like mushrooms. With the downturn in the economy, these types of deals must be open and honest. It is time for those who pays these bills to take to task those who think they can operate being “juice” rather than honesty and intregity. Thanks for the open discussions on these issues and make sure your neighbors start to be involved in these issues facing us.Patt McCaffrey

Time will tell and perhaps then we will understand why there was so much misinformation from the Hospital. It is interesting that the contractor for construction was awarded without any blueprints as Sam told us that weren't any blueprints completed. This is going to be exciting to see how things get done for the hospital. I certainly hope things go a lot smoother than most of the projects in this County. :-)

Good Grief! We need a hosptial, what we don't need is a mill levy with too many loopholes — like using the money for operating expenses. Change the language and make it concise, clear, and leave out the operating and do the correct procedures and convince the voters that the hospital can actually pay for this new hospital and then most intelligent people would make the decision to build it. Why is this so difficult to understand or did you already forget the Justice Center? There are still a lot of hurdles to leap over and why use capital dollars for operating expenses or is this another hidden agenda?Patt McCaffrey

There are very important decisions to make on the eve of the election, and hopefully decisions will be made on facts and not on emotion. Our emergency room can still handle cases very well without a new poorly worded mill levy. In the olden days, the voters usually voted down a mill levy twice, and then on the third try, it passed because the wording was clear and concise, based on good facts presented to the electorate. However, that is certainly missing this time. As we tax the industrial and commerical properties, we can watch them raise their prices to pay for all these little penny increases. As Charlie Brown always says, “good grief”!Patt McCaffrey

Did anyone read the Rocky MT News/Denver Post combined articles about how each American is on the hook for $400,000 due to the National Debt, well just keep adding on to our debt for many generations. I think we need a good hospital but would like to make sure we can afford it before the debt drowns the community. The Hospital didn't tell all the processes and procedures that need to be done before they can get the funding. This is so unforgiving and disappointing that we can't get all the facts out to the public. I can't believe that enoughalready called the Moffat County/Craig voters dimwits — that is truly sad.

So taxing the golden gooses is the best we can do? Is that a good business model for making such an important decision — back to voting from the heart and not thinking about how all of this debt will affect us for the next 40 years. These decisions are why Craig/Moffat County continues to work from Boom to Bust. jsds00 said it concisely, why should the rest of us have to support poor decisions by the Hospital Board? If we want continued growth, then taxing everyone isn't the path to take to attract businesses. Emotional decisions were the reason we are stuck with unnecessary debt problems now./s/ Patt McCaffrey

It would appear that several people are still voting with their emotions and not using a good business model. We are being taxed way beyond what most people can afford to pay since the college mill levy and the fire department's mill levy. We having going to ruin Tabor, which most voters haven't realized it, and be taxed right out of the county. I agree we need a hospital in Craig/Moffat County and a good school system (teachers, etc), but ones we can afford without putting this debt on our future generations. At this time, I don't believe the Board based on past performance and questional deeds. I didn't realize the taxpayers are so weathly that 40 years of increased taxes won't be a problem. Most businesses will have to increase their prices to accommodate the mill levies, along with ongoing property taxes, etc. /s/ Patt McCaffrey

WOW— this discussion is really working, as more people are actually reading the information and asking very good questions. It is time that citizens vote with their good financial sense rather than emotions. I believe we need a hospital, but one we can afford without burdening the financial responsibilities of a generation or two. We should start making decisions in our City and County based on good business sense rather than emotional rhetoric.
Time for change == learn the facts and make decisions based on business methodology rather than the emotional representation./s/ Patt McCaffreyPS Thank You to the Moffat County Commissioners for leaving it to the citizens to make their own decisions .

Thanks for the information on the blueprints as I given inaccurate information, and I appreciate knowing the facts.

Also, when you pay on your house, you can always sell it and take the profits — doesn't work that way with the hosptial — they will want a bigger and better one before the mill levy has finished the forty years! Isn't that a little crazy for a county of 14,000 citizens? Maybe the Board or Founddation could sell bricks or Commemorative inscription plaques to pay for the hospital.
or see results without voting.
