PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Jasper County Senior Center Relocation

The Jasper County Senior Center plans on temporarily relocating the center, including all Home-Delivered Meal program, congregate program, telephone reassurance program and offices related to such programming during the estimated 10-month construction period of the existing facility, which will be renovated and expanded according to the CDBG.

The following needs shall be considered for August 2018 to June 2019:

1-Use of commercial kitchen or a large enough kitchen to accommodate commercial appliances, specifically freezer, refrigerator, oven, ice maker, steam table with at least 4 compartments from 8:00am to 1:00pm Monday through Friday – in order to distribute 80-90 catered meals a day. Our staff will clean up all areas used including appliances, countertops, pans, trashcans, and floors. Congregate lunch is served from noon to 12:30; cleanup is from 12:30 to 1:00pm. We provide all cleaning and kitchen supplies.

2-Use of the dining area for 30 to 40 people a day from 9:30am to 2:00pm Monday through Friday; this area will serve as multi-purpose. Our general schedule for congregate members is coffee/breakfast/snacks from 9:30am to 10:15am, exercise from 10:15-10:45am, group and individual activities from 10:45-11:45am, break 11:45-noon, lunch 12-12:30pm; break 12:30-12:45, group and individual activities from 12:45-1:45; prepare to leave at 2pm. Activities can be loud as music and games are played and a microphone is used. During this time members often enjoy outdoor areas as well. If there is a funeral or need for you to use this area during congregate hours then we will need at least 5 business day-notice in order to move activities to another location. We prefer that this movement be limited and funerals be planned after 2pm or on weekends, for the well-being of our members.

3-Use of one to two offices where 3 staff can operate during regular office hours of 8:00am to 4:30pm. Three computers and a copier will be used as well as desks, all of which we can provide. We prefer that this office space be separate from the dining area for sound-proofing but close enough to get to the members when needed. Staff must have quiet areas in order to complete reports, data entry, case management, planning calendars, and other paperwork. We prefer private office space with a locked door as we house confidential info and occasional money.

4-Handicapped accessibility for the entrance and exit of the dining hall and restrooms. Entrance and exit areas need a covering when it rains, if possible. Restrooms need at least one male and one female handicapped accessible toilet area to accommodate wheelchairs. We will supply all restroom supplies, including toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, trash bags, and cleaning supplies. We will provide janitorial services daily and leave all areas clean after we close.

5-Outdoor area for smokers can be a bench located near the dining area. We will provide a cigarette butt dispenser. We also prefer an outdoor area for picnics and outdoor events. If you do not have this, we request the approval to set this up.

6-We request that the price offered for monthly rent includes utilities and garbage pickup. If internet and phones are needed then we will cover those costs.

Henry – signage request on Ross Road – Horse Crossing.



Regular Agenda:

New Business:

Opioid Litigation:


Atty. Ozburn noted he was asked to look into whether this would be a good thing for the County to do.  The potential cost to the County could be a great deal if they do not join the lawsuit.  He talked with Candler County Attorney and they have already filed suit along with their Hospital Authority.


Atty. Ozburn explained that this is a lawsuit in federal court, it is multi-district.  The firm that is handling this in Georgia, is the Blasingame Firm in Athens. This is an area of specialty for them. There is no cost to the county. The State Attorney General will bring an action and try to negotiate a settlement state-wide; it will work out better for the county to do it this way; instead of having to apply for it later. He recommends the county join in this fight against opioid crisis.


Comm. Henry made motion to authorize the Chairman to sign the resolution on the Opioid Litigation based on information obtained from Attorney, Luke seconded; passed unanimously.
