New drug and alcohol policy for senior services

By Dana Casadei

The Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees unanimously approved the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation (SMART) requirement for a drug and alcohol policy specifically for the Bloomfield Township Senior Services Department at their meeting on Monday, April 8.

Christine Tvaroha, director of the senior services department, said that this new policy will only affect their department and not others within the township, and is an adoption of what the department already follows.

The amended drug and alcohol policy will now match the Federal Transit Administration format, and will cover any employee who drives a SMART-funded vehicle for senior center transportation services and day trips put on by the senior services department. 

Positions covered under this policy are bus driver, transportation coordinator, senior center assistant with chauffeur’s license, and subs for drivers.

Motor pool employees are covered under the township’s department of public works’ policy and testing protocols. 

Bloomfield Township’s substance abuse policy is also still in effect for employees of the senior services department.
