174 beds filled in June 2916. Mary Ardapple, my questionable successor on the Peoria County Board, and a strong supporter of HO insisted on having an "out of state" marketing firm be hired at an approximate $80,000 figure. What went wrong Ms. Ardapple??
The County Board evidently does not have an administrator for HO. Why not? Hopefully I will have an Opinion in the JS soon to shed more facts on what went wrong at Heddington Oaks.
In case your interested, HO collects $3.1 million, or thereabouts, each year from property tax owners yet admits residents from other counties who do not pay taxes to support HO.
