Ollie Hawkins, supervisor of GAR, told the group commissioners agreed to meet and discuss concerns regarding the county home. Knowing it would be an emotional meeting, Hawkins began by saying she wanted to show appreciation for Carroll County Commissioners. "I have been here for 21 years and had commissioners backing who have been fairly supportive, some more than others and we have always had good communications." Hawkins said the development of the county home ground has been in discussion since 2011.

Everyone knew this issue was coming it was just a matter of when, how and how much we would have. She stated the county home is not going to close and discussion would involve how much property are they going to have available and what portion of any royalties or gas money they may be able to put into a trust.
Hawkins said during her tenure at GAR, they have received hundreds of thousands of dollars in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) monies which has made many improvements, windows, doors, floors, roof. "We could not have done any of those capital improvements without that money," said Hawkins. "The commissioners are the ones who put the money through to get those funds funneled to us. She also noted generous donations, volunteers who worked at the home over the last 173 years, and area farmers helped when the county home had crops in the gardens. This type of help continues today. "The community support, past and present is outstanding," she said.
Hawkins said the county home averages 50 residents and 15 on a waiting list.
She feels in order to keep the county home functioning and keep capital improvements and keep security, changes are needed. Hawkins said she did a title search and found there is no provision to return funds to the county home from the sale or development of property.
She said salaries and budget take over 50 percent of funds and she does not look for that to change. Usually employees begin employment at minimum wage but she would like to be able to bump wages up to $8 per hour. Monthly fees for residents remain $1,600 per month and have not been raised since 1996. However, she feels rates may be increased $200 per year up to $2,000 per month. It currently costs $2,700 per resident per month.
Hawkins submitted questions to commissioners before the meeting and noted she would "like to help try to organize a formal request to the commissioners to retain more acres than has been allotted and a portion of the lease bonus and royalties or income created from property be deposited into a trust to be used for capital improvement for the Carroll Golden Age Retreat."
...
Hawkins said their concern is older people sitting on the front porch watching semis pull in and out of the driveway. Ohler said he and Hawkins had a discussion 6-8 weeks ago. He can't remember if it was at her request or if he just stopped in. Hawkins said, "You came out and asked, 'How much of this land do you need?'" At that point, Ohler stated, "Ollie said she wanted to expand the parking lot and needed at least a minimum of 15-20 feet of where I am presently at. They looked at the property line and at that point Ohler told Hawkins if we go straight back to the property line, do you think that would be ok?
...
Hawkins said, "Yes. They also talked about the cemetery and Hawkins said she didn't think they would need much expansion at the cemetery.
...
Hawkins said she did not realize the decision she made that day was going to affect the facility for the next 100 years. She feels it was not clarified that she telling where she wanted a parking lot was going to define the boundaries.
...
Hawkins said she has no permanent improvement funds and they did work on bathrooms to make them handicapped accessible and reinsulated a room. The bill came to not over $9,000 and she had $5,000. Hawkins spoke with her accountant and decided to sent the bill to the commissioners and see what happens.
...
Once again Hawkins said the county home would like to have more acreage, a portion of the bonus money and of the royalties.

"You have to keep up with inflation," said Ollie Hawkins, superintendent of the Carroll Golden Age Retreat at 2202 Kensington Rd. NE, north of Carrollton in Washington Township. "We exist on what we get from private pay, donations and our tax levy. We don't get any money from Medicare and Medicaid for room and board, because we are not a certified, licensed facility."

The replacement levy, if approved, would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $43 a year.
The established monthly fee for residents is $1,600, according to Hawkins.
But what is actually charged is "based on ability to pay if they are a county resident," Hawkins said.
