Inclement Weather Notice
Winter in Michigan means weather can change quickly. A couple of program and service notes:
• If the Avondale Schools or Pontiac Schools are closed due to inclement weather; the Senior Bus Transportation Program will not operate for safety reasons.
• The Senior Services Department reserves the right to cancel bus transportation if deemed unsafe for buses or riders.
• Senior Meals on Wheels will make every effort to deliver meals; however, if it is determined to be too dangerous for our volunteer drivers we will cancel meals. If this occurs we make every possible attempt to notify Meals on Wheels participants. If meals are not delivered due to the weather, participants are encouraged to use their survival meal packets.
