A future story in PAID POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT Your Hospital Property Tax Assessment \ on each slO0,O00 of assessed valuation Based on our committee's extensive research involving numerous sources, we have confidently determined that taxpayers will pay an average of only $98 per year, per $ 100,000 assessed value'over the 30-year term of the bond measure. In the simplest of terms, that is an average of only around $8.33 per month. Certainly not a lot when you consider all that is at risk! " ...... Save Our Hospital is an independent grassroots group of citizens dedicated to keeping Plumas District Hospital open. We believe that if Prop. B passes; it will lead to the eventual closure of PDH with devastating consequences to our community. PDH has a low-interest USDA bond in the works and Prop. B will kill this opportunity for low-interest federal money. PDH generates 288 jobs locally and $30 million a year, included in that number is $8 million and 70 jobs for local businesses. PDH's planned addition is the least costly alternative, having been extensively scaled down from its original plansto what we have now that meets the community's needs and budget. Remodeling the existing facility is not an option. We're your friends and neighbors, And like you, we're also taxpayers whocare! We've done the research and can now confidently and intelligently predict this tax limit on the low interest bonds you approved last year... mlse Bill Coates Mich'ael Jackson Earl Thompson Pete Hentschel Greg Kinne Mo and Janine Regusa Kim Kraul Keith Nicoles Bill Wickman George Terhune Karen Kleven Sue Wickman Sources: "Market Potential Economic Study" of Plumas Hospital District Center for Economic Development, California State University, Chico - "Findings and recommendations on Hospital Seismic Safety," California Seismic Safety Commission "California's closed hospitals 1995-2000," University of California, Berkeley "Implementing A New USDA Rural Development Program Targeting Rural Hospitals and their Communities," USDA Public Financial Management, Inc.
