DESPITE still not receiving a lease price from the Portland District Health board, the Sea View House Steering Committee expects to finalise its finances in the coming days.

“We should have our finances, staffing levels and a good idea on our costs that has been prepared for us by Dean Brewster, from Brewster Walsh,” Mrs Bourke said.
