The East Baton Rouge Council on Aging is hosting community meetings to discuss plans for expanding services throughout the parish.

 “We hope the Baton Rouge community will join us at the upcoming community meetings to learn about our plans to expand the great services the council provides for seniors from across this community,” said Dr. Brandon Dumas, EBRCOA Board Chair.

The new services will be paid for in part by a new millage that was approved in November 2016. Officials say the funds will also eliminate the current waiting lists.

“In addition to the community meetings hosted at senior centers around the parish, the Millage Implementation Task Force will meet in April 2017,” states a press release. “The Task Force is comprised of seniors, representatives from governmental agencies, elected officials, faith-based organizations and non-profit agencies from across the parish. Formed to assist and advise the COA Board and staff, the Task Force will provide input and oversight as funds are received and plans for expanded services are implemented.”
