In February, the provincial government announced almost a million dollars to give the Paddon Home a new roof and sprinkler system.
That work has now begun.
The building closed down last year, with the opening of the new long-term care facility attached to the local hospital.
Before its closure in 2010, Jerome Kennedy, Minister of Health, told the Labradorian that there were a number of possibilities being looked at for the building’s future use.
Almost a year later, after an $840,000 investment, that decision has yet to be made.
The Labradorian placed an interview request with the Department of Health, but was told by a spokesperson for the department that no decision has yet been made.
