Hospital board to accept commissioner resignation
Special meeting tomorrow
Public Hospital District 6 commissioners will gather in a special meeting Friday at 3 p.m. to consider the tendered resignation of Commissioner Greg Behrens.
Commission President Jerry Kennedy confirmed that Behrens had given his letter of resignation March 20.
Determining the process to appoint a new commissioner is the second order of business on the agenda, followed by a closed session to consider legal and personnel matters.
Behrens has been on one side of a split in the commission in recent months over a controversy between administration and staff. Behrens was not in favor of a motion that passed March 10 directing an investigation in whether there is cause to fire Chief Operating Officer Scott Graham.
Graham is one of the final two candidates under consideration for the CEO position at Three Rivers Hospital in Brewster, where the hospital board is set to make a decision Tuesday.
