Seniors Services Consultation

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Medicine Hat has started the community consultation process around seniors services in an effort to better serve our community’s growing seniors’ population.

Staff were directed by City Council, in August 2016, to examine alternative operating models, along with associated operating costs, as part of the Seniors Centre Development Project. The annual cost of operating the Veiner and Strathcona Centres is $1.42 million.

This community consultation process will help improve the selection and quality of programming offered and determine if an alternate governance and operating model is better positioned to deliver services, and do so in a way which reduces the need for contribution from the tax base.

Once the community consultation is complete, staff will evaluate the feedback, explore alternative operating models, and subsequently bring a recommendation forward to Council in the spring of 2020.
