Commission on Aging asks county for financial help to move

July 14, 2005|by TARA REILLY

The Washington County Commission on Aging on Tuesday asked the County Commissioners for financial help in moving to a building that the agency said would better serve senior citizens.

Susan MacDonald, Commission on Aging executive director, asked the commissioners for $47,500 toward relocation costs for the Aspiring to Serve Community Center on West Franklin Street in Hagerstown.

The Commission on Aging is at 9 Public Square in Hagerstown.

MacDonald said the agency would like to move in the new building this fiscal year, which ends June 30, 2006.

The commissioners didn't vote on the request, saying they wanted to wait to see whether funding is available from the Tri-County Council for Western Maryland.

The council is a regional economic development organization representing Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties, according to the council's Web site.

Commissioner Doris J. Nipps said she'd like the Commission on Aging to also ask the City of Hagerstown for financial assistance, saying the agency serves all of Washington County.
