DaytonCityCouncil: At their meeting Tuesday night, the Dayton City Council gave approval for City Manager David Douglas to schedule a town hall workshop to discuss issues concerning the Liberty County Hospital District. Dayton has previously expressed concerns over the hospital district’s use of property tax money that entity collects. In January, Dayton Council hired an outside legal council and audit firm to review the questions the council had about the hospital district’s operations. City Manager David Douglas said it was originally planned to release the results of that review in a public meeting. A date and time will be announced as soon as those are set.
