City to purchase, operate hospital

The Troy City Council approved a resolution Tuesday that will put it

in the health care business and raise taxes in Troy.

Troy Regional Medical Center, pending final approval from the city’s

Health Care Authority Tuesday night, will be owned and operated by the

city of Troy, and current owners will step down.

This will come at the expense of a 1-cent sales tax to be enacted

March 1. For a complete story, see Wednesday’s edition of The

Messenger.
