Disability Network Southwest Michigan is a proud partner on the Senior Millage Planning Committee in Kalamazoo County. Kalamazoo is one of only ten counties in the state of Michigan that does not have a senior millage–what does that say about the way we care for the elderly in our community? After tireless work with the County Commission, the Senior Millage Planning Committee has successfully gotten the Senior Millage on the ballot for the August 7 election.
The proposed millage would be used to support in-home and community services. This encompasses basic needs, such as home safety & repair (including ramps), home delivered meals, and in-home care services. Successful passage of this millage would make a significant difference in keeping seniors safe and living independently in their own homes.
If you live in Kalamazoo County, be sure to get out and vote on August 7 to support independent living and the needs of seniors in our community!
