Letter: Resolution to the senior center

Finally, there is a light in the tunnel pertaining to the city council negotiations regarding our South Lake Tahoe seniors and the senior center buildings and area. It is about time the county enters formal negotiations so that the City of South Lake Tahoe can work out its long-term improvements and keep our seniors happy.

Our city deserves a “win-win” situation for all the improvements and upkeep rendered for all these years. Our South Lake Tahoe Seniors are a happy, close-knit group that deserve better. The last two years have been hitting all the high notes with an expanded membership, more in-house programs, and a notable newsletter to share with all the community.

In fact, even the Commission on Aging (COA), which is headquartered in Placerville, has the Tahoe-Seniors Newsletter in its correspondence folder for all to see and enjoy within El Dorado County. They, too, have offered positive input and would like to see a final resolution on this settlement matter.

Thanks also to Mr. Ken Sands and Sue Novasel (District 5 Supervisor), along with city manager Nancy Kerry and staff, for explaining to the El Dorado County staff about this resolution.

The South Lake Tahoe seniors need to be heard after all these wandering years! Our positive year will be 2016, even though we are still waiting in the wings.

Our fingers are crossed. It is about time!

Ron B. Zehren

COA commissioner (District 5)

South Lake Tahoe, Calif.
