Established by Resolution 06-189-18.

The governing bodies of the Birmingham Public Schools, City of Birmingham, Village of Beverly Hills, Village of Bingham Farms, Village of Franklin and Southfield Township wish to explore ways to meet the increasing demand for senior services, and therefore 
established the Ad Hoc Joint Senior Services Committee to develop and recommend a long term plan for addressing the increasing demand for senior services.

a)    One elected official from each respective Governing Body.
b)    One resident member from each respective municipality appointed by each municipality.
c)     One ex officio member from each school and municipal administration.

All terms are until March 30, 2019.

To develop a long term plan on how to best proceed in addressing the increasing demand for senior services in accordance with the following:

  1. Review the Joint Senior Services Committee Final Recommendation to the Municipalities Report from June 2013.
  2. Evaluate current service demands and projected trends for senior demographics and future service demands.
  3. Analyze current funding sources and operational structure of the current contracted senior service model.
  4. Compare and contrast current senior services funding and governance models in the participating communities to other area communities and best practices.
  5. Review and evaluate cost and budget implications of any proposed recommendations and include strategic funding alternatives.
  6. Compile the Committee’s findings and recommendations into a report to be presented at the end of the Committee’s term.

 The Committee is not authorized to expend funds or enter into agreements. All recommendations made by the Committee shall be in the form of a report to the Governing Body. The committee recently prepared and endorsed a draft Interlocal Agreement for Senior Services that is being reviewed by surrounding communities.
