On Thursday evening, Feb. 4, the Menlo Park Senior Center experienced flooding due to a faulty faucet. Staff arrived Friday morning to find the building completely flooded with some rooms up to ½ inch deep in water. Community Services and Public Works staff worked with a water damage and restoration company to clean up and fix damages to the center. The temporary closure required a tremendous amount of coordination with various senior services agencies, volunteers, seniors and their caregivers. The Senior Center is tentatively scheduled to reopen Tuesday, Feb. 16.
