CALEXICO — Heffernan Memorial Hospital District Trustee Ray Falcon said a Calexico landowner could step forward in the next few weeks and donate 25 acres to the district for construction of a new hospital.
He said the district should have some sort of commitment in 30 days.
Falcon made the prediction during Thursday's district hospital board meeting as he updated the Heffernan board on the latest negotiations for land.
Board Chairman Mark Perrone explained why it would take a few weeks to get a firm commitment. He said accepting a donation of land is, "Not as easy as you think. We have to get together and draw up conditions."
As for who might donate the land, Falcon said, "We've met with Mr. Barry (Garman) trying to get some land, met with him a couple of times."
