Aspermont ISD Government class observe county government first hand

By Jeff Hurt

The Stonewall County commissioners had guests in the courtroom Tuesday, as students from the AISD dual-credit government course were present in order to get a real-world view of how local government operates. Commissioners reviewed the quarterly investment reports, discussed future operations, and approved bids for struck-off property among the day’s agenda items.

In her quarterly investment report, County Treasurer Anya Mullen informed the court how the County only had to extract a little over $20,000 from the CD. She went on to explain how this was, in fact, good news considering the IT work and new deputy sheriff vehicles, and helping the fire department purchase a new truck, which was not budgeted for at the beginning of the year.

Stonewall Wellness Center under new leadership

Stonewall Memorial Hospital CEO Andy Kolb recommended the board allow the SMH Wellness Center to fall under the management of the district’s non-profit foundation. His goal is to see a new director take the center in a direction that may better serve the community and the district as a whole.

With the recent retirement announcement of Ellen Abernathy, the center’s current director, Kolb said this is a good opportunity to transfer operations while ensuring community involvement. Additionally, with the SMHD foundation assuming the responsibility of the facility, the district stands to save roughly $19,000 annually.

However, the foundation cannot support the center based solely on memberships from the community. But Kolb said they recently learned the hospital can give its employees a $20 per month membership—set up under the employee benefit plan—that would be an allowable cost where 67% of membership could be funneled to the Wellness Center’s operational fund.
