Geary County Commissioners will conduct a Town Hall meeting on Aug. 25th at 6 p.m. at the C.L. Hoover Opera House to inform the public about Geary Community Hospital. Local officials have been working on a $32 million bond issue to help the financially challenged GCH make it through the year until Jan. 1st when Stormont Vail is scheduled to assume oversight of Geary Community.

Alex Tyson, Chair of  the Commission, said many people don't know the plan. "I think as a community we need to know which way we're going." He added that it's important to be transparent and inform the public about what will be done.

Tyson said the Town Hall will be in the theater portion of the Opera House. He is hopeful that many people will attend.
