The county Board of Supervisors agreed at its Tuesday meeting to give the Area Agency on Aging $6,283 of in-kind money.
In-kind money is the dollar value of county services provided.
AAA, which gets $300,00 from the state, requested the $6,283 in cash.
The agency was originally a non-profit but failed in that form. The state then operated and funded the agency and the Board of Supervisors agreed to take it over as long as the state continued to fund it, Assistant county Executive Officer Robertta Burns said.
The concern is the county is going to get into funding the program and in a couple years, the state is going to say the county must support the program, Burns said.
"We live in a wonderful nation, a great nation, the best in the world. But we sure don't treat our older people very well, and I think that's a sin," said Supervisor Joe Maruca, a member of the AAA committee.
