PECOS COUNTY - Whether or not Pecos County will get a new hospital district will be up to voters.

A special election will be on Saturday, April 4th.

Hospital officials say the new district would let the hospital board make the major decisions, and a slight tax increase will make up for lost revenues from the economic slowdown.

Pecos County Memorial Hospital is one of five county hospitals in the state.
