People have one last chance to weigh in on the possible sale of Pleasant Acres Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

A meeting in the Central York High School auditorium Tuesday evening is the last of several town halls on the possible sale. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.

York County commissioners say Pleasant Acres has cost taxpayers $75 million over the last decade. They say there are more than a dozen potential buyers for the county-owned home and a private owner would relieve taxpayers of the financial burden.

At previous meetings, people came by car and bus, packed the meeting space, and raised concerns about the quality of care. Many opposed to the sale say a private company could be more focused on profit than on the care they provide to residents.

If Pleasant Acres is sold, all residents will have the choice to stay at the nursing home. Employees would have to reapply for their jobs with the new company.
