CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

Knox County Fiscal Court approved bylaws of the Knox Hospital Corporation at its Wednesday meeting.

The hospital turned its operation over to the county on July 16.

A new chief executive, Gary G. Kendrick, began operating the hospital on Monday.

The bylaws state that the county judge/executive will serve as the chair of the board of directors and will appoint all other members of the board.

The directors will be on terms of four years with members appointed this year staggered in order that less than a third of the board members’ terms will expire in a given year.

Except for the hospital medical staff member on the board, all directors must live in Knox County.

In other work by the fiscal court, the county attorney reported that the income of delinquent tax for the previous month was $58,077.66.

A resolution regarding the National Incident Management System (NIMS) was approved.

Knox Emergency Management Service Director Mike Mitchell explained the resolution includes that “the collective input and guidance from all federal, state, local and tribal homeland security partners has been, and will continue to be, vital to the  development, effective implementation and utilization of a comprehensive NIMS.”

It also calls for effective incident management, resource management, disaster management and a standardized incident command system regarding terrorist attacks.
