SCHUYLKILL HAVEN, Pa. -

Schuylkill County is looking at options to save money in its budget.

County officials say financial problems have surfaced at the Rest Haven Nursing and Rehabilitation Facility.

Rest Haven began having money problems in August when it was granted a short term loan of $500,000 from the county's general fund.

Since then, Rest Haven has been granted another $1 million from the fund in order to operate.
