Senior Advocates seek community input on purchase of new van
SOLON– The Solon Senior Advocates want to replace their aging 10 passenger van with a larger 25 passenger bus. In order to justify the purchase and attendant expenses, the group feels it should be available to various community organizations and groups. It will be necessary to schedule fee-based usage from others in addition to the Advocate’s senior trips in order to justify the purchase.
The Advocates are asking local groups, organizations and individuals for input regarding usage to support a community vehicle of this kind. The Advocates envision providing trips to doctor appointments, grocery shopping and many other community transportation needs especially if SEATS service to Solon is curtailed in the near future.
Please contact the Senior Advocates with your comments in order to determine if there is a community need for such a vehicle. Call 319-430-8655 or mail to: P.O. Box 206, Solon. Your input is appreciated.
