STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Oktibbeha County voters will have a chance this week to voice their opinions on the potential sale of a local hospital.

County supervisors voted unanimously to create a trust fund for the proceeds of the sale of OCH Regional Medical Center.

The potential sale of the hospital will be on the ballot next month. Voters will decide whether or not the county-owned hospital should be sold. That referendum will be November 7th.

Supervisors met in executive session last week for more than two hours but released very little information because of "confidentiality agreements" with the bidders.

There is a town hall meeting set for 6 p.m. Thursday at the Oktibbeha County court house to discuss the hospital.
