Buda strives to represent senior needs

The city of Buda is planning to take the next step in attempting to provide services for the 65-year-old and over population.

On March 21, the Buda City Council is expected to take up results from the city’s aging survey and focus groups, which were conducted in January.

Buda Human Resources Manager Kristin Williams said Feb. 21 the survey results would be available for presentation within the next couple of council meetings.

Buda Public Information Officer David Marino said in an emailed response the survey is to help “prioritize the critical needs for aging adults and their caregivers.”

Marino said the survey was completed in early March with 102 total responses from residents.

The survey was made available to Buda’s seniors and their caregivers via numerous outlets, including digital and physical templates.

“The survey was dispersed through social media, the city website, copies were available at City Hall and it was also distributed to our senior communities,” Marino said.

While the survey was completed, Marino said the city continues to gather more information on how to improve services for seniors in the community.

“We will continue to find ways to communicate services and programs to our senior population in Buda,” Marino said.

According to Marino the future for Buda’s over 65 population could include representation of some kind.

“It (the aging survey) could result in a task force or aging commission,” Marino said.
