Seasonal Announcements

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.
