The Council on Aging and Disabilities is a governing committee for the Aging & Disability Resource Center, which is the lead agency of municipal government representing the needs, concerns, interests, and well being of older adults and with disabilities in St. Croix County.
The Council consists of 11 members appointed by the County Administrator, with confirmation by the County Board. Reflecting the ethnic and economic diversity of the geographic area served by the Resource Center. At least one-fourth of the members of the board consist of individuals who belong to an ADRC client group or their family members, guardians, or other advocates. The proportion of Council members representing older people, people who are physically disabled, and people who are developmentally disabled is the same as the proportion of individuals in these target groups statewide that are enrolled in Medicaid managed long-term care programs. These individuals will only represent one target group. One member of the governing board is an individual with a mental health or substance abuse issue, or their family member or other representative. One member of the governing board may also represent youth transitioning to the adult system.
