NRMC public hearing rescheduled

NATCHEZ — The public hearing about the proposed sale of Natchez Regional Medical Center scheduled for Wednesday has been rescheduled for next month.

NRMC Board Attorney Walter Brown said the hearing had to be rescheduled because the legal advertisement advising the public of the matter did not run the legally required number of times prior to the date of the hearing.

The public hearing will now be 9 a.m. Sept. 6 at the Adams County Board of Supervisors’ offices on State Street.

The Natchez Democrat does an excellent job with the publication of legal notices, and unfortunately we had a miscommunication and it only printed one time,” Brown said.

Under state law, the resolution has to be published three times, with the public hearing being at least a week after the third publication.

“We regret the issue occurred,” Democrat Publisher Kevin Cooper said. “In checking our records, the notice was published exactly as requested.”

Legally, the public hearing in which the county supervisors and the hospital board of trustees will present the public with the justification for the sale of the county-owned hospital must happen before the county can place the facility on the market.

Once the public hearing is complete, the supervisors can adopt a resolution to put the hospital up for sale and to seek proposals from interested parties.
