Genesee Co. Nursing Home & Genesee Justice Will Continue to Operate.

My very first blog dealt with the issue of the Genesee County Nursing Home and the county's attempt to sell it to a private entity.
More recent was a blog about the county's attempt to dismember Genesee Justice.
Today, both concerns were put to rest (at least for now).
Please take the time to click on the links to thebatavian.com to read the stories.

Report: Don't sell the nursing home

Keep it for now.

That's the recommendation of a consultant hired by Genesee County to study the Legislature's options for dealing with the increasingly expense-draining county nursing home.

Rochester-based Center for Governmental Research turned over a report this week to the county that said it's not a good time to sell public facilities and the county may not achieve sufficient returns from such a sale.

Support, history of Genesee Justice motivated director to ensure division saved

Ed Minardo will be out of a job come Jan. 1, but Genesee Justice will carry on.

"It was certainly in my mind, 'Not on my watch," Minardo said after learning that County Manager Jay Gsell would recommend to the Legislature that Minardo's plan to cut staff hours and eliminate his own job be approved.
