What is the future of  Tracy’s senior programming?

Among the ideas shared at a recent budget study session to come up with funding to help pay for Capital Improvement Projects as a $94,000 deficit looms was a reshuffling of senior programming.

Ideas bounced off the council included moving senior activities such as cards to the back room of the Plaid Moose (the building that was once home to the Multi-Purpose Center). Rent would be the same as it is at the Eagles Club ($300 per month), but the City wouldn’t have to pay part-time workers to be on-site for senior activities since Plaid Moose employees will be in the building — the Eagles Club isn’t open during the day.

Hansen estimates the City could save about $20,000 a year.

Tracy Community Development Director Jeff Carpenter said there is plenty of room in the back room of the Plaid Moose.
