BETHEL, Alaska (AP) - Operators of the Bethel Senior Center are looking for a home to move into.

KYUK (https://is.gd/ezrX1R) says the Orutsararmiut (oh-ROOT’-sah-rah-rah-mewt) Native Council runs the Eddie Hoffman Senior Center out of a city building, but the operators can’t afford to stay there.

Operators are set to move out at the end of September and turn the building over to the city, which plans to mothball it.

Councilman Mark Springer, whose day job is to run the center, discussed options in a brief meeting of the Bethel City Council and ONC.

Springer says operators are confident of being able to find a place.

Possibilities include the Lions Club or the Lulu Herron Center, which provides senior housing.
