Sheriff Benison continues work on changing bingo rules to help hospital

In a telephone interview with The Democrat, Sheriff Benison said that he is continuing to work on changes to the Greene County electronic bingo rules to assist the Greene County Health System (GCHS).
The Sheriff met with the GCHS Board of Directors last week and committed to increasing the per machine fee on bingo machines by $25 to support the health care services of the hospital, nursing home, physicians clinic and other services.
This change in the machine fee would generate $50,000 a month
to support health care for Greene County, starting November 1.
“ We desperately need these funds to cover ‘uncompensated care’ for low income residents,” said John Zippert, GCHS Board Chair.
