Selectmen reduce non-resident registrations at senior center


SALEM — The Russell and Roberta Ingram Senior Center is a popular spot for Salem’s senior population and some out-of-town seniors.

Because of that popularity and the desire to serve as many Salem residents as possible, Selectmen recently approved reducing the non-resident registration for the senior center from 400 to 350 nonresidents.
..
General participation at the senior center is free for Salem residents and $40 annually for nonresidents.

“We will continue to allow former residents with proof of five years of prior residency to have preferential treatment on the waiting list,” said Town Manager Keith Hickey.
..
Selectmen unanimously approved the nonresident registration. Selectman James Keller said the need to increase space for town residents is self-evident. The senior center and Salem Senior Services are funded by the town and the Salem Council on Aging.

Its 2014 operating budget is just shy of $350,000. As of June 1, the center had 2,650 seniors registered to participate in its programs, of which 85 percent are Salem residents and 15 percent are from other communities.
