Hospital board to weigh drafts for new districts

The new support services building is up and running now.

The San Benito Health Care District later this month will weigh three draft plans for new districts.
The hospital district is moving toward district-based elections after legal questions arose last year over the at-large process now used.
According to an announcement on the upcoming meeting:
On Feb. 26, the directors of the San Benito Health Care District will consider three draft plans for the establishment of five single-member director districts. Currently, directors are elected on an at-large basis.
The District has hired a demographer to prepare three draft plan maps showing five districts consistent with state and federal law, population equality, the Federal Voting Rights Act and communities of interest. The proposed district maps will be presented, available for review and comment at two public to be held Thursday, February 19 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the San Juan Bautista City Council Chambers at City Hall, 311 Second Street, San Juan Bautista and from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Oasis Chapel adjacent to the Hazel Hawkins Mabie Health Care Center at 991 San Juan Road, Hollister, CA 95023. The demographer will consider all oral and written comments when finalizing the proposed districts that will be presented to the Directors at their regular meeting at 5:00 p.m. Thursday, February 26 in the Hazel Hawkins Hospital board room located in the main hospital building at 911 Sunset Drive, Hollister, CA 95023.
The three draft plans will also be available for review from Friday, February 13 to Thursday, February 19 on the Hazel Hawkins Hospital website at www.hazelhawkins.com and at the Hazel Hawkins Mabie Health Care Center open 6 days a week Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays 8:00 a.m to 11:30 a.m.
