Let LDC handle Manor sale

(Continued)

According to the state comptroller’s office, LDCs are private, nonprofit corporations created by or for local governments and are often used to avoid constitutional or statutory provisions that would apply to projects undertaken directly by a local government. 

An LDC would take the burden of actually selling the Manor away from the board. On the surface, this sounds like a good idea. After all, board members aren’t experts in this sort of thing. If an LDC can help ensure that the Manor is sold to a responsible operator, perhaps the facility can avoid Countryside’s fate. 

After all is said and done, after the threatened lawsuits by the Civil Service Employees Association and others, let’s face it, the Manor will be sold. The best way out of the current dilemma would appear to be leaving the sale to those who know what they’re doing.
