County board votes for new nursing home


St. Croix County (WQOW) - The St. Croix County Board had three options to choose from as it determined the fate of a long-running issue.

The board could've voted to keep the current county-owned nursing home and reduce expenses.  It could've also opted to close and sell.  The third choice was to build.  On Tuesday, the board voted 11-7 to build a new facility.

WQOW News 18 spoke with a board member about the cost of the project and the timetable.  He said those things must still be determined.
