MAYVILLE – The effort to sell the Chautauqua County Home to VestraCare has cleared another hurdle. On Thursday the county legislature’s audit and control committee approved a contract to sell the skilled nursing facility for $16 million by a unanimous vote. It will go before the full legislature next Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, the committee also passed a proposed contract for the union representing county sheriff’s deputies. It contains no salary increase for deputies in 2012, but does have a 2-percent salary increase each year from 2013 through 2016. If approved by the legislature, the 2013 increase would be a retroactive payment to all deputies who worked during that year. The contract will also be discussed and possibly acted on during next week’s full legislature meeting.
