Jeffco Commission voting soon on nursing home sale

JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Jefferson County's commission expected to vote on selling the county-owned nursing home this week.

Noland Healthcare Services would pay $9.5 million to buy the Jefferson County Rehabilitation and Health Center.

Commissioner George Bowman is the only member who opposes the sale. He asked for a delay on Tuesday's scheduled vote, but the other commissioners refused.
