(Ashland, Ohio) – The Mental Health and Recovery Board of Ashland County is seeking a levy renewal on the upcoming November ballot.
Officials say dollars generated by the levy are essential and will hep provide:
- vital mental health crisis response services 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
- help for those struggling with drug addiction.
- school-based outreach and early intervention through the Liaison Program.
- support services for seniors and their families.
- provides suicide prevention programs.
The 1 mill, 5-year property tax levy is not a new tax and generates approximately $1.2 million for the agency annually. Officials add that the levy provides 82% of the funding of liaison programs. Funds, they say, also help leverage state and federal grant dollars.
Without passage of the renewal, officials note they would expect an interruption in services provided by the agency. For more information, visit the ashlandmhrb-levy.
