When putting property on the market, most intelligent people would get an appraisal to know the value.
Was this done with the Chautauqua County Home? I have grave doubts. Would former County Executive Greg Edwards or current executive Vince Horrigan have done this if the property were their own?
The taxpayers of Chautauqua County have invested a great deal of money in the Home over the years. Surely, if sold, they should be able to realize some measure of return on that investment. The amount being bandied about does not seem to be a realistic return on that investment.
