MAYVILLE - After a meeting lasting nearly four hours, no change has been made in regard to the Chautauqua County Home.
Wednesday night, Feb. 27 the County Legislature heard more than one hours worth of comments during the privilege of the floor, many relating to the nursing facility. On the agenda were two resolutions relating to the County Home. The first resolution was a renewed resolution authorizing contract for the sale of the Chautauqua County Home to Altitude Health Systems, a resolution which was also heard - and voted down - in January.
The second resolution relating to the home was a local law amending a 1975 local law which requires a supermajority vote in the sale of real property in Chautauqua County. The law was supported by Chairman Jay Gould, R-Ashville; George Borrello, R-Irving; John Runkle, R-Stockton; Robert Stewart, R-Ellington; Tom Erlandson, D-Frewsburg; Larry Barmore, R-Gerry; Mark Tarbrake, R-Ellicott; Paula DeJoy, D-Jamestown; Vince Horrigan, R-Bemus Point; Paul Wendel, R-Lakewood; Fred Croscut, R-Sherman; David Himelein, R-Findley Lake; and John Hemmer, R-Westfield.
