Board of Commissioners Appoint New Senior Citizen Advisory Panel Members

PAINESVILLE, Ohio, February 22, 2024 – On February 22, 2024, the Board of Commissioners appointed Emily R. Koenig and Lawrence W. Sterk to the Senior Citizens Advisory Panel. Both candidates were chosen based on their experience, skills, and dedication to serving the senior community.

The Panel serves as an advisory and recommending body to the Board of Lake County Commissioners to facilitate equitable and beneficial distribution of the funds derived annually from the Lake County Senior Services Levy.  The Panel, with guidance from the county administrator and senior services manager, plays a crucial role in advising the Board of Commissioners on how levy funds should be prioritized and distributed to best meet the needs of older adults in the community.  The recent expansion of the Panel from five members to seven members will strengthen the Panel’s ability to evaluate programs and services and ensure that the needs of Lake County seniors are met in the most effective and efficient way possible. Please click here to read the entire press release.
