Top 3 Priorities

  • COVID-19 time: Maintain status quo and plan infrastructure needs funding. After COVID-19: Increase +55 appeal and offerings
  • Explore employing grant writers to obtain funds for heating/air conditioning, leaking roof, and other infrastructure needs.
  • Expend monies on ‘needs;’ avoid ‘want’ expenditures unless they have a positive fiscal return.
