Delaware County Senior Services Levy Passes with Flying Colors
Voters have approved the Delaware County Senior Services Levy. The Committee to Save Senior Services and SourcePoint, the local nonprofit that manages senior services in Delaware County, offer sincere thanks to local voters for their support of the levy.
Late Tuesday night, unofficial Board of Election data showed the levy had passed with 72 percent of the electorate voting in favor of the levy.
“We are grateful for such strong support from the voters,” said Robert Horrocks, executive director of SourcePoint. “Passage of this levy means we can continue to expand access to services, maintain and improve the quality of services, and keep our promise to the community of no waiting lists for in-home care services.”
By supporting the ballot issue, voters renewed the 1.2-mill levy and approved an additional 0.1 mill. Senior services levies can last up to five years by state law, making levy funds available from 2019 through 2023.
The Committee to Save Senior Services also extends gratitude to the individuals and organizations who offered their time and support to the levy campaign.
“SourcePoint has been fortunate over the years,” Horrocks said. “The community has supported our levy, people volunteer their time and talent at amazing rates, and others donate money to help enhance what we do. It’s this support that makes Delaware County a community where every person can thrive after 55.”
For the past 25 years, SourcePoint, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has worked to promote healthy aging and to help older adults in Delaware County remain living safely and independently in their own homes.
