Boock welcomed Mrs. Teresa Cook from The Area Agency on Aging. Mrs. Cook began by stressing that the levy
money stays in Richland County helping Richland County Seniors. She said the main objective is to help
seniors stay in their own homes and be independent. She said that the levy provides services to seniors
who are not eligible for traditional programs and would fall through the
cracks. She said the 94% of the money
actually went for services for the seniors.
Only 6% went for administration costs.
She said that they provide home delivered meals, transportation
services, which are vital in Richland County, personal care, and even minor
home repairs. She encouraged everyone to
vote YES on the levy and to call (419) 525-6757 if anyone knows a senior in
Boock and Council thanked Mrs. Cook for her time and service.
