The public hearing for the sale of The Legacy at Park View Care Home and Park View Assisted Living facilities was held July 17, 2017.
At 10:00 a.m. Commissioner Stewart called the Public Hearing to order for the purpose of accepting an offer submitted by Western Prairie Senior Living LLC to purchase the care home and assisted living facilities. County Attorney, Jessica Akers; County Treasurer, Rita Gee; Care Home Board Members, Larry Kepley and Kathy Olson; Care Home Administrator, Kim Doty; and Social Services Director, Lou Ann Ragan, attended this portion of the meeting. Citizens in attendance were: Daris Wiebe, Betty McCauley, Shirley Tillotson, and Gwen Lowe. Commissioner Stewart opened the floor for concerns and questions. Daris Wiebe informed commissioners he was not submitting his petition due to a lack of signatures. Commissioners requested the Care Home Administrator report the monies remaining in reserves. Kim Doty stated the Care Home/Assisted Living reserves as of July 17 were $718,000.00. Commissioners addressed several questions from those attending. After no question warranted a stop of sale, Commissioner Stewart asked for a motion to approve the sale of the care home and assisted living facilities. Martin Long made the motion to enter into a Contract for Sale of Operating Business for $750,000.00; to enter into a Real Estate Purchase Contract for $2,000,000.00 with Western Prairie Senior Living LLC to purchase The Legacy at Park View Care Home and Park View Assisted Living facilities. The property legal description: a tract of land located in the Northeast Quarter (NE/4) of Section Twenty-Seven (27), in Township Twenty-Eight (28), South of Range Thirty-Seven (37), West of the Sixth Principal Meridian, Grant County, Kansas with the exception of coal, oil, gas and other minerals underlying the surface of said land and all rights and easements in favor of the estate of said coal, oil, gas and other minerals. Kevin Shapland seconded the motion, and it passed unanimously.
