Bryan Looking into Senior Center

By  | 

Bryan city officials responded Thursday to a proposal for a new seniors' center that came during Tuesday's meeting.

The request came from Dorothy Hernandez, who explained the need for a social gathering place for some of Bryan's elderly.

Officials with the city said the proposal is timely because they are currently working on the budget, and that they plan to look into the request.

"It's budget time, and I was asked by the mayor to start researching how and if we could do this," said Bryan City Manager, David Watkins.

Watson said during the exploratory stage, he would also like to look at opportunities to cooperate and collaborate with other facilities that service the same community.
