Health, Human Services Committee urges County Board to explore financing for assisted-living facility, improvements 

   A $10 million plan to build a 24-bed assisted-living facility for frail elderly people and those with dementia and make improvements to Lasata Care Center will be forwarded to the Ozaukee County Board for approval.

    The Ozaukee County Health and Human Services Committee on Tuesday reiterated its support of the plan by a 2-1 vote and asked the board to move forward with financing options and design work.

    The committee also defeated a move by Supr. Rick Bauzenberger of Mequon, a member of the committee, to put the project on hold until a feasibility study could be done to determine if the county should continue to operate the nursing home or instead sell or lease it to a private operator to run.

    “I think we have all the information we need,” said Supr. Cynthia Bock of Mequon, the committee chairman.

    The county, which has done numerous studies of the issue, committed to supporting the nursing home when it was built in 1966 and reiterated that stance when it agreed to build Lasata Crossings — an assisted-living center — on the Lasata campus, she said.
