Working together, Councilwomen Vicki Aubrey Welch (D) 13 and Madonna Flood (D) 24 will host a special event for senior citizens that will help keep them healthy and save money at the same time.
“We are fortunate to offer not only help to senior citizens with the MSD bill and if they like we can get them a flu shot before the cold weather sets in,” says Welch. “Now is the time to start thinking about prevention since we have had a change in the weather.”
On Tuesday, October 16th, Welch and Flood will sponsor a workshop to allow seniors in their districts the chance to apply for a rate discount from MSD on the storm sewer bill.
At the same time, flu shots will be offered by the Fairdale Ministries and the Visiting Nurses Association.
“We love bringing the MSD discount to the qualifying seniors of Districts 24 and 13. Vicki and I want to help folks with limited incomes take the opportunity to file this paperwork,” says Flood. “And the flu shot, although it is highly recommended for seniors, is open to anyone. We are trying to make both opportunities as convenient for our constituents as possible"
The MSD workshop is from 9:00am to 3:00pm for applicants 65 years of age or older with a household income of $25,000 or less per year. They must bring one document from each of the following categories: IRS Tax return & schedule (filed within the last 12 months) or Social Security Form SSA; Deed or Lease Agreement; Drivers License or Birth Certificate and a copy of their water bill.
The Flu shots will be held from 9:00am to 12:00pm. Here is what will be offered: Flu shot $30/ Pneumonia shot $40.
The Playtorium is located at 10616 W. Manslick Rd.
For more information on the flu shots, call the Fairdale Area Community Ministries at 367-9519. For more information about the MSD Rate discount, call the offices of either Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch at 574-1113 or Councilwoman Madonna Flood at 574-1124.
