RI County administrator addresses courthouse, sales tax and Hope Creek

Rock Island County Administrator Jim Snider joined 4 The Record for a conversation this week. This is the second part of that interview.

Snider discussed how the county can generate more revenue, the possibility of a sales tax to shore up the county's finances and how important it was for the county board to give the go ahead to the county courthouse's demolition.

He also talked about the Hope Creek Care Center and its own troubled history with the county, and what it will take to keep the facility on the right path after it was upgraded this month from one star to two stars.

Watch the full conversation in the video above.
