Trigg County Hospital’s proposed $7.1 million surgical wing expansion project cleared another hurdle last Tuesday evening.

The Trigg County Public Hospital Corporation’s Board of Directors voted 4 – 0 last Tuesday at a special called meeting to approve a bond resolution. A bond ordinance was previously by the Cadiz City Council and the Trigg County Fiscal Court.

Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander, who isn’t a voting member of this board, said this is a bond resolution that allows the issuing of the U.S. Department of Agriculture bonds – which will be issued via USDA’s Rural Development – to happen and is different from the ordinances passed by to two local government bodies. The resolution was the only item on the agenda.

“If we adopt it, that allows the project to move forward,” said Alexander. “This resolution goes forward to make the money available, and then the bidding process will start.”

“This is basically authorization from this board for powers that be to move forward with the project, to set the wheels in motion,” said Trigg County Attorney Randy Braboy. “The former ones were just housekeeping matters concerning the Corporation.”
