The residents of the former Wood River Township Hospital District who paid into a fund to support the facility for five years after it closed are receiving their share of the $8.4-million that was left over. Madison County Clerk Debbie Ming-Mendoza says some residents have already received their refunds and that all of the checks have been issued and put in the mail.

Ming-Mendoza says her office has taken a number of calls questioning the amount of the checks. She says that property values did not play a role in calculating the amount refunded.
