The Hopkins County Memorial Hospital Board adopted a deficit budget for the second straight year at a meeting Monday night. The budget is almost $2.5-million in the red. The board also raised the tax rate 3.63-cents to a maximum 25-cents per $100 valuation. The board scheduled two public hearings on the tax rate: on September 8 and September 15 at noon each day.
