Support Older Persons, all millages on ballot

All five millage renewal proposals ask us to keep on keeping on–something Alpena citizens have done together for many years.

Both prop 2 and 3 support older persons throughout Alpena County who are 60-plus regardless of ability to pay. Services provided by senior millage include: home delivered meals, in-home care, respite for family caregivers, healthy living activities, Medicare/Medicaid counseling, tax preparation, various health clinics. The Senior Center has a free loan closet for durable medical equipment like canes, walkers, wheelchairs. Twenty-eight percent of Alpena citizens are touched directly by senior millage. This millage makes up 43 percent of the Senior Services budget.

Your yes vote on Aug. 5 on all five proposals will ensure that Alpena keeps on keeping on. Together we can continue important services for young and old.
