In general, what does the city need to do to ensure continued financial stability for SCKMC? Do you think significantly reorganizing and/or selling SCKMC should occur, and if so, why? The current situation with the hospital should be addressed. The hospital has made strides to improve their situation. I think an overall review of their financial position and long-term outlook would need to be completed to fairly assess their situation. I believe the community should have a facility for health care needs as it is a quality-of-life issue. The City of Arkansas City in 2018 will provide $75,000 to Cherokee Strip Land Rush Museum, $45,000 to Cowley First, $30,000 to...
