HUNTSVILLE — After months of struggling with on-again, off-again plans to reopen the Scott County Hospital, County Commission and Pioneer Health Systems, of Magee, Mississippi, appear to have found a feasible way to do it, judging from the tone of the update provided here Monday night.

Meeting in a regular monthly work session, County Mayor Jeff Tibbals and Community Development Chairman Paul Strunk, reported that all documents regarding the Asset Purchase Agreement could be in the hands of the State’s Attorney General by week’s end.

That will signal the start of a mandated 45-day review period by the Attorney General, after which (barring any obstacles) Pioneer will be free to gradually re-start the facility which has been closed since May 2012.
