Update from County Board meeting.
October 12, 2022
A big thank you to each and every one of you who took action in response to CCHCC’s action alert about the Rothner’s plan to try to sell the former county nursing home (now called University Rehabilitation Services of C-U) to a non-nursing home entity.
Your actions made a difference!
What happened at last night’s County Board Meeting: Last night, several people spoke during Public Participation, urging the County Board to vote NO on the Rothner’s request to sell the nursing home. There were no speakers supporting the Rothner’s request.
The County Board voted, unanimously, to deny the Rothner’s request (not a common occurrence)! Many spoke very eloquently and powerfully about why they would vote no, and why the covenants in the sale contract mattered so much.
