RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF DULUTH AND THE ST. LOUIS COUNTY BOARD FOR THE FURNISHING OF MEALS FOR THE PERIOD FROM JANUARY 1, 2000, TO DECEMBER 31, 2000.

BY COUNCILOR FENA:

RESOLVED, the proper city officers are hereby authorized and directed to execute an agreement between the city of Duluth and the St. Louis County board for the furnishing of meals for senior citizens for the period of January 1, 2000, through December 31, 2000. Monies collected under said contract shall be deposited in Federal Program Fund 272, Dept. 031, Org. 6300, Revenue Source 4654.



STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution authorizes a continuation of the contract with the St. Louis County board for their Title III-C (2) meals on wheels program. The county has a contract for the meals on wheels program with the Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging and sub-contracts with the city to provide meals on wheels in the Morgan Park and Gary-New Duluth neighborhoods. The county did not go through a bid process for this contract as the city was the only provider available in that area. The meals on wheels are prepared and packaged at the city's Morgan Park congregate mealsite. The county reimburses the city monthly for each meal served: at the rate of $3.99 for clients on the elderly waiver program and at the rate of $0.70 for clients that make a personal donation for the meal. The terms of the contract remain unchanged from 1999 except that the rate for clients that make a personal donation has been decreased from $1.20 to $0.70. This difference of $0.50 will be made up by the client as their suggested donation rate has been increased from $2.50 to $3.00.
