While the eyes of the world were on the U.S. presidential race, taxpayers in Pomeroy, WA, had their own important business to oversee on Election Day.
 
Voters there approved a $198,000 tax levy that will allow Garfield County Memorial Hospital to update or replace some of the following equipment, as outlined by the Lewiston (ID) Morning Tribune:
  • Phone system
  • Emergency generator
  • Nurse call system
  • Fire alarm system
The generator, which was originally installed in 1948, failed two months ago, and repairs have been tough because the hospital can’t purchase parts for the equipment any more. In fact, the facility had to order a custom-built radiator for the generator at one point, the Tribune reported.
