The Erie County Department of Senior Services has announced the dates for upcoming annual public hearings to solicit public comment regarding the Department’s 2018 service delivery plan for older adults in Erie County. Members of the public, especially seniors and their caregivers, are encouraged to attend and add input on the services that are important to them.
“Everyone is welcome to attend these annual public hearings, which are a good way for seniors, their families and their caregivers to discuss what is important to them and let our Department know as well,” said Commissioner of Senior Services Timothy Hogues. “Each year we schedule one hearing for the city and one in a suburban location to make it easier for residents to attend. I will be presenting the plan and then encouraging dialogue with all present to get their opinions, thoughts, and other input on the programs they have participated in and what needs they have.”
