The Senior Advisory Board at their last regular meeting (2003 October 14) directed me to inquire what the City’s intentions are towards the programs and facilities of the Eddie Hoffman Senior Center and the Chrissie Shantz Adult Day Center. As of today, we have not been involved in the City’s discussions or plans.
This summer there was an article in the local newspapers wherein the Mayor discussed eliminating the Senior Center due to the City’s budget shortfall. Mayor Short suggested the Senior Center and programs could be transferred to the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corp. It has come to our attention that discussions were held between the City and YKHC on this matter. We have subsequently heard that Orutsararmiut Native Council would be interested in assuming the Senior Center.
We would appreciate knowing the following before our next regular meeting (2003 November 12 at 10 AM)—
· what is the City Council’s intention regarding the Senior Center and its programs?
· when and with whom have discussions occurred about transferring or eliminating the Senior Center?
· what were/are the outcomes of those meetings?
