Requested by: Morrow County Prosecuting Attorney
Section 339.06 of the Ohio Revised Code, as amended in 1972, authorizes a board of county hospital trustees to hire, by contract or as salaried employees, consultants as the board determines are necessary and desirable to assist in the management of the operation of the county hospital, and to use county operating funds to pay the cost of the same. The expenditure must be for a proper public purpose, and the board is afforded significant discretion in making that determination. Whether a particular expenditure of a board of county hospital trustees for this purpose constitutes an abuse of discretion is beyond the scope of an opinion of the Attorney General. (1961 Op Att’y Gen. No. 2188 and 1961 Op. Att’y Gen. No. 2397 overruled as a result of legislative enactment.)
