Welcome to the County of Berks
Berks Heim Sale Information Portal
Information Portal for the proposed sale of Berks Heim Nursing and Rehabilitation
The Berks County Board of Commissioners, in a continuing effort to further provide the public additional information with respect to the now-discontinued proposal to sell the Berks Heim, wants the public to see what the Commissioners saw in their decision-making process.
The General Assembly explicitly chose to exempt records that reflect “predecisional” discussions in enacting the Right-to-Know Law statute, and the County has previously voluntarily shared numerous documents and other information to individual citizens, members of the media and others throughout this process despite this statutory exemption.
Now that a decision has been reached, the Commissioners strongly believe that the public has a right to scrutinize, review and evaluate the documents the Commissioners saw and are pleased to share this webpage with links to these documents.
