TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Shawnee County Commission has unanimously passed a resolution issuing $17 million in bonds for an assisted living center in the River Hill subdivision.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1PE11om ) reports the industrial revenue bonds will cover the cost of constructing, equipping and maintaining a transitional care facility on 10 acres containing more than 90 beds in southwest Topeka.

Part of the bond money will be used to help fund support groups for mental health, substance abuse, sex offender and batterer’s intervention, and domestic violence.

Almost 100 people, including a full-time care coordinator, will be employed at the facility.

A time frame for when construction will begin has not been set.
