Premier Healthcare Resources, a private management company hired to administer the County-owned nursing home, will start on September 26. David Holland, ironically an Easton resident, will serve as interim Administrator.
In other business, Council unanimously approved a Stoffa proposal to hire McClure Company, a PPL subsidiary, for a guaranteed energy savings plan at Gracedale that will save taxpayers $16.2 million over the next ten years. Over the next year, McClure will install a new sanitary sewer system, grease interceptor, natural-gas friendly boilers and replace 17 air handling units that are between 40-60 years old.
Ironically, the low census will enable McClure to make improvements with a minimum of disruption in the daily lives of residents.
