Healthcare debate continues at Saratoga Town Council meeting

About 90 area residents turned out at Tuesday’s Saratoga Town Council meeting to address concerns about healthcare in the Platte Valley.

Several shared their thoughts on a proposed critical access hospital and the lease with Health Management Service for the town’s clinic.

At the end of the four hour meeting, the council decided not to make any changes to the lease at this time but plan to discuss it further in the coming weeks. Emma Diercks was there and filed this report.
