In Our Opinion: Manor suitors need to be vetted in public

(Continued)

With the decision made, assurances were given to those who fought against the sale that money would not be the only consideration when determining the next owner of the Manor. We expect those promises to be honored.

The public has a right to know before the sale what Focus or VestraCare will be doing to make a profit on the facility. Would the $18.5 million bidder have to cut services and personnel more than the $15 million bidder? What will they do that the county couldn’t — or wouldn’t — do to overcome that $6 million-a-year deficit?

This decision is much too important to be done behind closed doors.
