WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB)– UPDATE: Blocher Homes says they’re surprised by the picket due to their assurance that if the project moves forward, they will meet to bargain the effects of the decision.
The facility also stated they work hard to take care of each resident and continue to ensure each resident has a new home of their choice if the deal with People Inc. becomes a reality.
“Every step of the way we have shared and continue to share the most current information not only with our neighbors but also with our residents, their families and Blocher staff so we can assist them in best preparing for new homes and continued employment opportunities if the project receives the required approvals,” CEO and President of Blocher Homes Daniel O’Neill said.
