Santa Rosa Press Democrat

The Palm Drive Hospital board adopted its new $31.4 million budget after all.

Despite early thinking that Friday’s 2-1-1 vote wasn’t enough for approval, the board’s lawyer later determined that a simple majority of those voting was all that was needed, director Jared Dreyfus said Saturday. It means the spending plan proposed by hospital chief executive Rich Polheber is now adopted.
