Today could be the beginning of the end for Blair County’s ownership of Valley View Nursing Home.
County leaders are expected to vote today to sell the facility off to a private party. The commissioners spent much of the weekend reviewing final bids for the home, which were submitted by last Friday’s deadline.
Commissioners Terry Tomassetti and Diane Meling favor privatizing the facility, while Commissioner Ted Beam opposes it. As of last week there were still five potential buyers who remained interested in Valley View.
They had submitted preliminary bids ranging from $12-million to $16.1-million.
