Senior levy helps older citizens of Washington Co.
Every five years citizens of Washington County, who are eligible to vote, have the opportunity to support services for seniors. The senior citizens service levy is on the ballot this year.
The levy has for almost two decades provided thousands of meals, both home delivered and in local dining centers throughout Washington County. The levy has provided homemaker services, transportation services, and medical insurance assistance along with assistance to many senior citizen organizations in Washington County.
During the current pandemic the levy along with Older Americans Act funding and private foundations allowed our agency to provide hundreds of home delivered and grab-and-go meals five days a week every week.
The cost of the levy seems to me to be a small price for us to pay for the incredible amount of good it provides to our older citizens.
