Montgomery County Council postpones senior town hall meeting scheduled for March 11 at Leisure World

County employees are being diverted from nonessential duties to cover public health and safety issues


ROCKVILLE, Md., March 6, 2020—The Montgomery County Council has postponed a senior town hall meeting that was scheduled for Wednesday, March 11 at 8 a.m. at Leisure World in Silver Spring.

Connecting seniors with county resources is an essential element of the Council’s senior town halls.  On March 11, the Council had planned to have a number of government department representatives in attendance to make these service connections including the Department of Health and Human Services, the Fire Rescue Service, the Police Department, Montgomery County Recreation, the Department of Transportation, the Montgomery County Volunteer Center and the Office of Consumer Protection.

Montgomery County government is currently on active status which means that local government resources are focused on the health and safety issues associated with COVID-19.  Given these recent developments, the Council is postponing the Leisure World town hall to a later date.
