City legal bills mounting
Hillsboro’s legal bill for the bankruptcy of Hillsboro Community Hospital hit $65,339 Tuesday when council members voted to pay another $12,500 to the city’s law firm Triplett, Woolf, Garretson.
The legal battle began in January when Bank of Hays filed a petition for mortgage foreclosure against the hospital and seven co-defendants including the city and its Public Building Commission.
The city and the bank worked together to have Oklahoma-based Cohesive Healthcare Management and Consulting named receiver. In March, Cohesive filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
