Star Valley Approves Two Programs For Senior Citizens


The Star Valley town council approved two programs that will benefit senior citizens of the town.

The council unanimously approved a ridership program in conjunction with the Payson Senior Center, which will provide rides to Payson or around Star Valley on Mondays for Star Valley senior citizens.

Participation in the program includes a registration fee of $10 to obtain a ridership card. The card will be good for free rides for a year, Star Valley town manager Vito Tedeschi said.

The council also unanimously approved the selection of two projects -- emergency housing rehabilitation and Meals on Wheels -- that will be funded by a Community Development Block Grant. The grant is provided by the state for projects that improve the community.

The Meals on Wheels program, which will benefit Star Valley seniors, will not go into effect for several months because the projects must be approved by the state before the town can receive funding, Tedeschi said.

In other news, the council approved signage for town hall. A 4-by-8-foot, two-sided metal reflective sign will be set up near Highway 260 and the fence outside the Star Valley Baptist Church. A 3-by-3-foot metal sign will be mounted on the church building or hung near the church.

The council also adopted a set of personnel rules for Star Valley town employees.

Council member Bill Rappaport was not in attendance for the meeting.
