HUMAN SERVICES DEFtNITION AND CtTY ROLES , <br /> Karen and Terry Higashiyama met with the Mayor and Jay Covington last week far guidance and <br /> clarity of the administration's goals far providing human services for the citizens of Renton. The <br /> - administratian is concerned with taking care of the City's residents and doesn't want the city to <br /> become°a magnet that attracts people from outside the city because of our services. They feel the <br /> city should act more as a clearing house that directs people and assets to available resources and <br /> services; not as a provider of services. <br /> The questions were asked, "Are we spreading our dollars too thinly?" "Should the city direcfi more <br /> dotlars to fewer services?" , <br /> The Administration has targeted certain human categories as"priority populations"—Seniors, <br /> , disabled individuals,youth anci families—as targeted areas of concern. <br /> .
