Aransas County commissioners, after meeting in executive session at their regular meeting Monday, Aug. 19, unanimously approved supporting Code3ER on a month-to-month basis. The decision regarding support and amount of that support will be made at the commissioners’ second meeting every month.
At a special meeting July 25, commissioners unanimously approved supplemental payments of $37,500 per month to Code3ER, at the discretion of Aransas County Judge C.H. “Burt” Mills. The money will come from the county’s healthcare sales tax revenue.
At that time it was noted the payments will be made to help defray Code3ER’s incurred costs of providing uncompensated medical care to uninsured residents of Aransas County.
