University Heights seeks senior services coordinator

The city of University Heights is searching for a part-time senior services coordinator to develop programs to meet the needs of older residents. This position was last held by the late Walter Stinson, who retired in 2020.

The city is also seeking residents to serve on the Citizens Advisory Committee on Aging. 

“The latest census shows that 11.3% of University Heights residents are 65 or older,” said Deanna Bremer Fisher, who handles special projects for the city, including senior services. “Older adults often face challenges due to living with chronic conditions, and the city seeks to support them by providing opportunities to maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

Working with the Citizens Advisory Committee on Aging, the senior services coordinator will develop programs such as meetings, workshops, lectures, recreational activities, and senior transportation services. The coordinator will gather input on issues important to senior residents and advocate for policies affecting them. He or she will answer questions and address concerns from the public, and coordinate messaging for older residents.

This approximately 20-hour-per-week position will require some evening and weekend availability.

To apply, submit a cover letter and résumé via e-mail to, or via regular mail to City of University Heights, Office of the Mayor, 2300 Warrensville Center Road, University Heights, OH 44118.

University Heights residents interested in serving on the city's Citizens Advisory Committee on Aging should fill out the volunteer application on the city’s website (
