STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution authorizes an agreement with the Arrowhead Regional Development Commission for their Title III-C (2) senior dining program. 2007 is the second renewal year of a potential two renewals to the 2005 agreement with the Arrowhead Regional Development Commission. The city will provide meals to eligible senior citizens at nine sites and will be compensated in the amount of $3.88 per eligible meal. Total reimbursement will not exceed the sum of $262,851 (combined federal, NSIP [formerly known at USDA] and state funds). 2007 will begin the 34th year of the senior dining program in Duluth and we project that 67,800 meals will be served to eligible seniors. Compared to 2006, the city anticipates that the number of sites will remain the same.
