PEORIA, Ill. -- Following the opening of the new Heddington Oaks Nursing Home, Peoria County officials are looking at options for what will become of the old Bel-Wood Nursing home.

No community input was offered at the County Facility meeting Saturday morning.

However, board members are throwing around the idea of the Peoria County Jail absorbing the building for laundry or cooking.

No decision has been made yet, but members said there are several options, like selling it or the possibly placing FEMA in the facility.

A decision on the future of Bel-Wood Nursing Home is expected to be made within the next two months.
