From your President on Holiday…

Hi Seniors, from somewhere in the English Cotswolds

I love Park City, but after the winter or Snowmageddon, I’ve escaped for a while.  So while I’m canal boating and rambling in the English hillsides, you get a break from my newsletter ramblings.

Meanwhile, enjoy our Senior Center and all it has to offer. Be happy and healthy, and I’ll catch you next month.

Woodside II Working Committee
Update-April 2023  Newsletter

by Francie McNally

The Woodside II Working Committee had a very important meeting with Jason Glidden and Tana Toly on April 26, 2023.

They presented this information:

Senior Center Size

  • Due to the size of the lot and City Code restrictions, the building size resulted in 10,000 sq. ft. 

Senior Center Budget

  • The current fund has $991K from the remaining Lower Park Avenue RDA. 
  • The proposed funding will add $2.5 million for a total of $3.4 million. 
  • This is the first step in the process of funding the Woodside II project. 
  • As they refine these things and phase the project, so will they contemplate additional funding opportunities.

Jason and Tana assured us the size and budget numbers are NOT final. This is just the first stage, and they are going to continue to work and have our review on all aspects of this project. 

It is important to remember that as this is the very first stage, we will have opportunities to continue to express our wants and needs. None of this is final! At least we now have drawings to be able to visualize several scenarios. It is clear that if we increase the size of the Center, it will reduce that number of housing units available to Seniors. 

I continue to feel positive about where we are going, and we will continue to work to achieve our goals for our senior members.

Mountain Town Music……Thank You!!

FTC to voice service provider: give the robocalls a rest

By Andrew Rayo
Consumer Education Specialist

Tired of getting endless robocalls? We are too. Robocalls aren’t just a pain to get, they’re often pushing scams for things like fake auto warranties and debt relief. But scammy robocallers can’t do it alone. That’s why the FTC is taking action against Stratics Networks, a company that supplied the technology for telemarketers to make tens of millions of robocalls. But that’s not all — the FTC is also suing the debt relief companies that hired Stratics to make robocalls for their illegal debt relief services.

The FTC says that Stratics delivered illegal robocalls for a variety of telemarketers promoting offers for things like credit card and student debt relief, home buying, health insurance, cable TV discounts, and for telemarketers playing on concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. Many robocalls were “ringless voicemails” – where your phone doesn’t ring but you get a voicemail with a robocall message.

Here’s what to know: a robocall trying to sell you something is illegal unless the company has your written permission to call you that way. Scammers use robocalls to get your money or your personal information so they can steal your identity. They might try to convince you the call is from the government, tech support, or your auto warranty company. Don’t buy it. Even if the name or number on the caller ID looks real, it could’ve been faked.

If you get an illegal robocall:

  • Hang up or delete the voicemail. Don’t press any number or call back.
  • Get call blocking and call labeling apps or services. This will help you get fewer robocalls.
