An ominous warning last night from Mt. Carmel finance commissioner Joe Judge regarding the Wabash County Senior Citizens. Judge said that due to lack of funding by the state, senior nutrition services could be either curtailed or discontinued altogether….
Judge urged residents to contact legislators to help fight for the nearly $17 million in funding owed to the 13 area agencies on aging that in turn funds the local senior nutrition programs. Locally, Judge said the state owes more than $20,500 from fiscal year ’17 and almost $11,000 from October and November of FY ’18 to the Wabash County Senior Citizens Center.
