JAMESTOWN – The James Prendergast Library will sponsor a program about the sale of the Chautauqua County Home from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight in the Fireplace Room at the library. Speakers will be Chautauqua County Legislators Larry Barmore, Lori Cornell, William Coughlin, and Vince Horrigan.
Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards is urging the county sell the home to offset an annual deficit resulting from its operation. In the past few months, his office has been talking with potential purchaser William “Avi” Rothner of Altitude Health Services, LLC on the proposed sale of the home. A resolution involving the sale could come before the legislature later this month.
This is the second in a series of critical discussions, which began in November with a panel of experts on gas well fracking. The discussions are free and open to the public, and audience members are encouraged to participate.
