MAYVILLE - The dust from the Wednesday, Jan. 23 legislature meeting is settling as County Executive Greg Edwards looks to the future of the Chautauqua County Nursing Home.
Wednesday, the legislature did not come up with the 17 votes required to sell the County Home to William (Avi) Rothner of Altitude Health Services. Instead, it came up just one vote shy of the number. However, 18 legislators said they would be in favor of selling the home to the right purchaser. And, although the resolution passed with the majority vote, County Attorney Steve Abdella made it clear that if the sale of the home should come up again, it would still need a supermajority vote in order to be sold.
