BATH, NY — County legislators have backed a proposal that will have several services at Steuben County Health Care Facility outsourced within a couple of months, according to the Steuben Courier.

Outsourcing several services, including maintenance and housekeeping services, is expected to save the county close to $600,000 and afford the facility, which is deeply in debt, some breathing room, the article stated.

According to the article, the agreement includes a stipulation which requires Morrison Senior Living to interview the 28 employees that will be affected by the switch.

Sally MacDougal, president of Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) Local 851, expressed concern over the move, saying the added costs were worth it and that services will likely diminish under Morrison, the article noted.

"The county will find out the hard way, and it will be too late," said MacDougal.
