(Holyoke, MA)  —  The Holyoke Geriatric Authority seems unwilling to go down without a fight.  On Wednesday the Board of Directors discussed ways to keep the financially-insolvent nursing home open.  They talked about taking out a loan or becoming a fully-funded city department.  Mayor Alex Morse and Council President Kevin Jourdain tell the “Springfield Republican” that’s not going to happen.  The Authority runs out of money to meet payroll May 13th.  Morse has petitioned the state to appoint a receiver to shut the facility down.
