Concerns at the coffee bar this morning re: the bid process and possible results for the new 70-unit care facility for Williams Lake.
The understanding is that there are several companies bidding, and if anyone other than inSite be successful, the facility could be built off the Cariboo Lodge property.
Available properties within downtown are limited.
Bids were to be in to the Interior Health Authority by Oct. 27, 2016 and results known by January of 2017.
Concerns are that we could have another care unit at a distance from the downtown area.
We need to have a public meeting with city hall to show unity around the location of this new facility.
We all know the complications for the residents and families by having a care facility too far out of town.
