Members vote not to pursue hospital issue

GLASGOW — In a 6-5 vote Monday evening, Glasgow City Council essentially chose not to pursue whether or how to assess property tax on for-profit entities that use or lease property owned by a not-for-profit entity – T.J. Samson Community Hospital.

Councilman Wendell Honeycutt had asked City Attorney Ben Rogers at the conclusion of a recent council meeting to ask the Kentucky attorney general for an opinion on whether the city could impose property taxes on for-profit organizations such as T.J. Health Partners. T.J. Health Partners is a group of physicians who practice under the umbrella of T.J. Regional Health, the hospital’s parent company and who have had office space at the hospital and have an office building as part of the new T.J. Health Pavilion, where the hospital’s outpatient services will be, starting next week.
