Easton City council remind me of slumlords. They collect rent and taxes and have no budget for their property when repairs are needed. For years, Gracedale made them money. Now that repairs and bills are upon them, they want to treat it like an albatross. Typical of this day and age's mentality...get what you can for as long as you can then run when balance is due. Gracedale provides wonderful care, I know, I worked there through agency. I was proud of those employees and the residents always considered it home. Let's put it another way...when the people of Nirthampton County exhaust their retirement funds, and this includes council members, when they need assistance in their leter years, where are they going to go if there is no county home? Good luck. I say, man up council, do the REAL right thing. Or- be out of luck when you need the help...

Ah.. Easton City Council has nothing to do with Gracedale or this article. Ron Angle is on COUNTY COUNCIL and Gracedale is a COUNTY home as you stated. I'm a bit confused as to what Easton City council has to do with Gracedale????

With all the politically crazy comments here on Topix, turnout at the polls should be higher than ever in PA. Yeah, right.

Typo. Must have had Easton on the brain. Congratulations for being able to mentally multitask while typing. Excuse me, I now must go kill my editor.
