Twin Falls County Prepares For Former Hospital Takeover
When Twin Falls County takes possession of the former hospital facility on July first, it will also inherit the maintenance requirements to keep it in a marketable condition. The county is looking for tenants for the 17 acre facility and the only way to keep it marketable is to keep it looking nice. That’s a responsibility falling on Rick Novacek, the Twin Falls County parks and Waterways director. Novacek has already budgeted up to $15,000 for needed equipment but just exactly how much is needed won’t be known until the county actually takes over the facility and how long until a permanent solution is found. Officials say they are taking it one day at a time until they can get some tenants for the facility. Officials say the last thing they want is for the facility to become an eyesore.
