[ARCHIVED] Public Hearing on Four Year Plan for Services for Older Adults

Mineola, NY – Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced today that the Nassau County Department of Human Services Office for the Aging and its Advisory Council will convene a Public Hearing on the 3rd Annual Update to the Nassau County Four Year Plan for the Federal Older Americans Act and the New York State Community Services for the Elderly Act.  It will be held on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 101A, of the Health and Human Services Building, 60 Charles Lindbergh Boulevard, Uniondale, NY.
