Petition papers to save the Pleasant View Rest Home in Pulaski County have been distributed around Winamac.
Funding for the county home was eliminated by Pulaski County Council members during their meeting last week by a majority vote.
Pleasant View Rest Home Board President Bob White told WKVI News that if residents are in support of saving the county home they can sign their name to the petitions at Sanders IGA, the Pulaski County Family YMCA or on the Pleasant View Rest Home’s website at www.keeppleasantview.com.
The gathered signatures will be presented to the Pulaski County Council members and to the Pulaski County Commissioners.
The Pleasant View Rest Home board will meet in the next couple of days to crunch financial numbers and occupancy figures to present to the county council at their Nov. 10 meeting.
As it stands, the county home will be funded throughout the rest of this year but operations may need to move to other facilities to assist the nine residents who currently live at the facility.
