ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

On Tuesday, April 19, 2016, the Mayor’s Coalition for Economic Development will hold a public forum for senior citizens and caretakers in room 100 of the Government Center located at 222 Pine Avenue in Albany.

Representatives from Phoebe Golden Key, The Community Action Council, and The Southwest Georgia Council on Aging will be available to discuss services that they offer to local seniors.

Those who attend the forum will get a chance to learn about services like home health assistance, financial assistance, social events, and more.

According to the Mayor’s Coalition for Economic Development, over 20% of the Good Life City is or will be 65-years-old within the next 5 years.

During the forum, Mayor Dorothy Hubbard will discuss the impact of Albany's seniors.

Hubbard says the city attracts quite a few retirees.

“We have the kind of economy that allows one to live relatively well on retirement income,” Hubbard says.

The forum will run from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and is free to the public.
