County May Say Goodbye To Nursing Home

Posted by wlpo on September 15, 2009

What do you think of county-run nursing homes? You may be able to give your opinion in an upcoming election.

Nursing Home Committee member Jack Leininger is pushing for a public vote on whether or not they should continue to run a nursing home. Leininger says taxpayers dole out 1.3 million dollars for the nursing home which doesn’t come close to paying for itself. He thinks if they leased or sold the building, that million plus dollars could be used for something else or just be one less tax people have to pay.

Leininger suggests hiring a consultant to study what the best move would be for the county home.
