Mayor's Senior Citizens Committee

Mayor Valerie Keehn appointed a Senior Citizens Committee that meets every week. This committee is creating a strong support network for the senior citizens within our community. This committee achieved an important success when it advocated strongly for the CDTA transit system to include stops convenient for Saratoga Springs' senior citizens. CDTA had left out stops near senior citizen housing locations such as the Stonequist Apartments. The mayor's Senior Citizens Committee convinced the CDTA to add buses for senior sites.
