Budget committee looks at Senior Center meal funding cuts

Turkey TV Dinner


KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — After five hours of concerned locals in Klamath Falls talking to the budget committee about their desire to not end the Senior Center Meal on Wheels program, no decision has been made yet on whether the program will end.

Klamath County Commissioner Jim Bellet put out boxes of TV dinners and told the crowd that seniors could just eat on of those from their local grocery store.

The one person to vote against the proposed end to the program, Kelley Minty-Morris, was against the cuts because many seniors are unable to even get to a store to shop, which is why the program is called Meal on Wheels.

The committee meets again on Tuesday.
