Mayor Francis Adresses the sale of the former Grace Hospital
Yesterday was a significant one in the saga of the old Salvation Army Grace Hospital in Windsor.
Tony Battaglia ... a businessman from Hamilton ... held the mortgage on the building.
Yesterday he went to Windsor city hall and paid more than 900,000 dollars in back taxes ... opting not to pay outstanding taxes on some residential properties south of the old hospital. Mr. Battaglia says he has a buyer for the building ... and the land it sits on ... but he won't identify that person ... or persons.
He expects that deal to be completed within the next week or two.
Nobody's been watching all of this with any more interested than Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis.
