Town hall meeting asks: What do seniors want?

Every four years, local seniors get a chance to tell state and federal officials what kind of services they want for their area.

Funding for programs such as Gold Country Telecare transportation services, home delivery of meals and respite care receive their funding based on the priorities that are set, said Grass Valley lawyer Valerie Logsdon, who is chairwoman of the Nevada County Adult and Family Services Commission.

At 10 a.m. July 22, seniors can attend a town hall meeting at the Eric W. Rood Administrative Center, in Nevada City, to discuss their preferences.

The town hall meeting is being sponsored by the Area 4 Agency on Aging, which funnels state and federal money into the county.

Funding “depends on the priorities established every four years,” Logsdon said. “They have limited funds, so they’re asking for input to establish the priorities for the next four years.

To RSVP, call 273-2273.
