Millage rates corrections
Placeholder Image
The Courier incorrectly reported Sunday that Liberty County Commissioner Connie Thrift made a motion at a meeting Thursday to approve a 3.25 millage  rate for Liberty Regional Medical Center as requested by the Liberty County Hospital Authority for the upcoming property tax collection season. Her motion was actually to approve 3.125 mills. It failed, and 3.1 mills eventually passed. The story also used a quote from Reggie Sage in the incorrect context. He was talking about the costs and consequences of unwed women having children when he said the community needed moral courage to face the issue. He was not talking about hospital financing.
