.02% doesn't seem like too much for all the good this program does. "This is the first time in 10 years that we will ask for a 2/10th increase," she stated. "This will carry us into the next five years, especially with the increase in the price of gas and food plus the growing number of elderly in the community. Without this levy, it will be hard to provide services to our community.

"In 2013, we provided over 200,000 home delivered meals, 600-700 home delivered meals a day," she continued. "More than 50,000 congregate meals at different sites; 14,500 transportation trips to doctors, grocery stores, etc.; 322 units of legal services; and more than 400 exercise classes. We have had to trim down some of the alternate programs over the past 10 years to preserve the food and transportation programs. We currently have 200 people on the waiting list for home- delivered meals."
