WAYNE PUBLIC HEARING TO ANNOUNCE POTENTIAL SITE CLOSURE

The Association of South Central Oklahoma Governments (ASCOG) Area Agency on Aging is hosting a public hearing to receive public input regarding the potential site closure of the senior nutrition site currently located in the Town of Wayne effective March 31.  The hearing will be held February 21 at 11:00 a.m., at 107 N Shannon in Wayne.  The Wayne Nutrition Site is ADA accessible.  The purpose of the public hearing is to inform the community about the potential site closure and to seek community support in increasing the numbers of seniors who participate at the site.

In October, November and December 2017, Wayne averaged serving 20-21 meals per day.  DHS policy requires all Title III nutrition sites to serve at least 25 meals per day.  ASCOG is encouraging all Wayne seniors aged 60 and older, and their spouses, to attend daily noon meals at the nutrition center.  If the average daily meals served goes above 25 by the end of March, 2018, then the Wayne Nutrition Site can continue to serve seniors.  Otherwise, the site may be closed effective March 31.

Older Americans Act funding for ASCOG is provided through DHS Aging Services.  ASCOG makes no distinction on the grounds of race, color, sex, age, ancestry, national origin, religion or disability.
