Williamson County Commissioner Bob Barnwell isn't dropping the idea of selling the county's publicly owned hospital. And he has the backing now of industry titan HCA, whose legal experts chimed in this week with an opinion that state law would allow county officials to use proceeds from any sale for their general fund. In addition, a company spokeswoman said HCA would consider buying Williamson Medical Center, but county officials are moving quickly to block any prospects of an auction.
But at the same time Barnwell was touting the benefits of free markets, an opposing group of commissioners gathered at the hospital to discuss how they might drive a stake through such a notion. That dagger was revealed Wednesday when members of a tax study committee adopted a resolution opposed to selling the hospital.
The resolution carried the signature of 10 cosponsors.
