The Senior Advisory Council has been established by the Blaine City Council to recommend programs and services for the senior citizens of Blaine. It is the intent of the advisory council to make every effort to provide equal program opportunities for all Blaine area senior citizens. The Senior Advisory Council also recommends guidelines for use of the Mary Ann Young Senior Center.
The Blaine City Council appoints a councilmember to sit on the advisory board, and the mayor also presides. Advisory members serve a term of two years and may elect to run for additional terms pending city council approval. There is not an established limit to the number of members that can sit on the advisory board. Members are given notice prior to the expiration of their term, and a period of time to resume membership should they so desire.
