Indy Commissioners Want Childrens Home To Remain Open

Last updated on Wednesday, June 10, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Marion County commissioners are asking the state to keep the children’s guardian home open.

In April, the commissioners recommended closing the home; the 80-bed facility had just three kids in it at the time.

Now the panel says the home has had up to a couple of dozen kids at other times this year, and says it hasn't heard a good proposal for where those kids should go instead.

The final decision is up to the state department of child services.
