Hospital district not weighing in on suit

From The Weatherford Democrat, by Christin Coyne, 10/22/15 –

hospitalDespite owning the land and building in dispute and facing the possibility of losing $85,000, the Parker County Hospital District is not weighing in on a lawsuit involving the taxable value of the hospital.

Weatherford Texas Hospital Company, a subsidiary of Community Health Systems, is suing the appraisal district, arguing that the taxable value of the hospital should be approximately $35 million rather than $60 million, which the district has valued the property at since 2012, according to Parker County Appraisal District Chief Appraiser Larry Hammonds.
