Montague County Commissioners met Wednesday morning to discuss the creation of a Bowie Hospital District. The county clerk approved a petition from Bowie Memorial Hospital trustees.
The Bowie Hospital District will now be an election item. The district would include Bowie ISD and Forestburg ISD.
The proposed district would have a tax rate of 19 cents per $100 in property value. The tax would generate around $1.3 million per year.
