Harriman facing $17M hospital question

-A A +A
By Cindy Simpson

Harriman officials got sticker shock when they learned about the potential cost of renovating the old Harriman Hospital for use as a city municipal building.

Broken down into three phases, the total cost would be around $17 million if everything were done with the three sections, including building an area with bays for the fire department in phase 2.

“We are either going to keep it and fix it or tear it down and be done with it,” said Mayor Wayne Best.

The key, he said, is deciding what would be best for the city of Harriman.
