   The Grenada County Board of Supervisors and the Grenada Lake Medical Center board will meet tonight to discuss the future of the hospital.
   According to Board President and District Two Supervisor Chad Bridges, the meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at the courthouse.
   Although supervisor meetings are usually in the morning, Bridges said the meeting was moved to the evening to accommodate scheduling.
   “The supervisors will be going into executive session after the meeting starts,” Bridges said in a telephone interview. “The discussion deals with sensitive issues that pertain to the future of the hospital and its employees. We will be discussing with the hospital board what path we will take.”
   The supervisors first spoke with the GLMC board in March about employee concerns and decided to seek consultation for possible sale of the hospital after a two-hour executive session.
   The board hired Horne CPA to prepare a report on the conditions of the hospital, and that report was presented on May 30 behind closed doors, because some of the information being deemed “proprietary” by County Attorney Jay Gore.
   The board has four options for the hospital: do nothing, sell the hospital, lease the facility or lease with the option to purchase.
   The board engaged the services Ridgeland-based law firm Butler Snow to assist in preparation and evaluation of any proposals submitted for the possible lease or sale of the hospital.
