Senior services get 90-day contract extension

Mono County seniors will continue to get all the services they currently receive—from Meals on Wheels to other in-home service—for at least the next 90 days after the Mono County Board of Supervisors agreed to extend a current agreement with Inyo County for 90 more days.

But in the long run, a final solution regarding how to serve the county’s seniors still needs to be put into place, county officials agreed.

Senior services were provided by Inyo County under an agreement with Mono County, but in the past year, serious differences between the two governments and financial difficulties in Inyo County have challenged the joint agreement. The issue will be addressed in detail at future board meetings, the county supervisors said Tuesday.
