Greenbelt Home Care reacts to Eldora withdrawal

When the city of Eldora backed out of its ownership role in Greenbelt Home Care a week ago - rather than contribute at $75,000 show of support - one might have thought Greenbelt would be put off.

She told the board of supervisors, because now Hardin County stand as the sole owner of a public stake in Greenbelt Home Care.

For years the county has made the one substantial financial commitment to Greenbelt, to provide for indigent health care.
