READER'S EDITORIAL: GROSSMONT HEALTHCARE DISTRICT SHOULD NOT FUND ENERGY COGENERATION EXPANSION WITH BORROWED MONEY

Included is an expansion of the hospital's central energy plant. The Grossmont Healthcare District is now considering adding a cogeneration feature to the plant  to be acquired through a "lease/purchase" agreement for $17,900,000 to be paid over a ten year (120 month) period at a rate of around $2,000,000 per year.
