Salem selectmen, senior center put cap nonresident members
Monday night, selectmen supported a proposal brought forth by Senior Services Director Patti Drelick to limit the number of nonresident members at the senior center to 400.
As the popularity of the senior center has grown, Drelick said there have been occasional space issues in the parking lot as well as the building itself.
“I think someone who has lived or owned property in Salem for a great amount of time should get some priority,” said Selectman Stephen Campbell. “Their taxes went to help pay for and maintain the building.”
There has been a dramatic increase in membership over the past three years, according to Drelick, with nonresident membership rising more steadily than that of residents.
The cap on nonresident members at the senior center was unanimously approved by selectmen and went into effect on Tuesday.firstname.lastname@example.org
