Rural Health Care District Board Discusses 2021-22 Budget

The Johnson County Rural Health Care District Board had their meeting for March on Monday, and among other items discussed the upcoming budget for the 2021-22 fiscal year.

The board reviewed preliminary figures for the budget, including projected revenue, expenses, and the expected shortfall in the budget they expect if projections are accurate.

Total projected expenses are at $1.223 million, leaving a shortfall of just over $98,000.
