HAMMONDS PLAINS – No forced evictions will take place at a Hammonds Plains assisted living facility on Thursday, after family members received an email from the Municipality’s Chief Accounting Officer.
Residents at Grandeur Estates said they had been told if they weren’t out of the facility by Thursday, police and ambulance would be brought in to relocate three people living in the home.
The Chronicle Herald reports an email from Richard Butts to affected family members, assuring them no one would be removed from the home by force, as meetings continue to resolve the situation.
The home’s owner was told in July that they were in contravention of fire and safety regulations, and didn’t have proper zoning.
The owner was given until Oct. 1 to bring the home up to code, but didn’t tell residents that until this week.
Meeting are continuing between the province, families, the facility’s owner, and municipal officials to try and find a workable solution.
