Hamilton County Commissioners are poised to reject an offer to take over the former Mercy Mt. Airy site.
"With budgetary constraints," says commission president Greg Hartmann, "I just don't think that our move to Mt. Airy is going to be fiscally prudent. I don't think that we can afford to invest $80-100 million, absent a new revenue source, in that facility. Today, I think that we should move on from Mt. Airy."
Commissioners Hartmann and Monzel say even though the building would be free, the renovation costs are too high.
