The St. Joseph County Commission on Aging Board of Directors has scheduled a special strategic planning meeting for Friday (April 27).
The session was set as the result of discussion during the board’s regular April meeting regarding proposed renewal of the COA millage in balloting later this year. As reported by Staff Writer Rick Cordes in the Three Rivers Commercial-News, “board members reached a consensus that to have a work session to develop strategic initiatives was a good idea.” The agreement to schedule such a meeting came in response to comments by Tim Carmichael, a board member who questioned a $1.8 million fund balance shown in the agency’s March financial report and said, “That is unconscionable.” According to the article, Carmichael suggested that “A wise move would be for the COA board to do some long-term planning to project financial needs.”
Friday’s special meeting is slated for 9 a.m. until noon in the St. Joseph Room at the Three Rivers Community Center, 103 South Douglas Avenue in Three Rivers.
