i would like to briefly explain that i am legally blind, i knlw that the city of columbus has a program called main stream which is vans with wheelchair lifts that will come to your home and take you to shop, doctors appointments, bank, whatever your needs may be, i would like the mayor of west union, city council, chamber of commerce, religious community to come together to investigate the possibility of government funds available to our commuinity for this kind of transportation service, i know that the senior citizens have a transportaion service for medical appointments out of our are but, the needs of our disabled are not being met, right here in our community, if anyonw has any ideas, i would be pleased to know how i might proceed and would be interested to know what kind of funds are available through our goverment. if you have any idea who i may contace in our local government let me know, if the mayor or city council would like to email me i would welcome that communication: [email protected]

I work in the medical field and I know that FRS brings some of our people to us for their appointments. Have you looked into them?

yes, i have applied for a home health aide through job and family services, it is my understanding that i am on a waiting list and was told it could ba a couple of years, i am also aware of the senior citizens vans, it is my understanding that they will not provide transportaion locally,here in west union, i wonder where their funding comes from and if it is allocated for specific purposes or if the funding source requires that it be allocated for specific purposes and how do disabled people with transportation needs play a part in that transportation source. these are the questions i hope to get the community talking about, and would like to bring this issue before the city council in west union, maybe more funding is available that has not been explored at this time. i sent an email to the governor of ohio regarding funding for disabled and i did not get a response up to this time. thanks for your concerns, happy holidays, merry christmas, mr swanger
