Drug Addiction Recovery Center in Elyria Placed on
- Aug. 10, 2018
-- A drug addiction recovery center in Elyria, Ohio has been proposed for a November ballot after unanimous votes by Lorain County commissioners.
The commissioners voted on a levy measure on the ballot that would approve funding for a brand new substance abuse treatment center.
If approved by the voters, the proposed levy will go toward Recovery One, an substance abuse treatment center. Along with the commissioners' assistance, the drug addiction recovery center would be aided by groups such as the Nord Family Foundation (NFF) and the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services of Lorain County.
The main topic deliberated during the voting session was determining the levy for the drug addiction recovery center. The commissioners played with several different variations of taxes before settling on a levy of 0.30 mill over a five year period. The board was able to come to a decision before the ballot deadline. County officials wanted to place the measure on the ballot this year because they believed it was a timely issue. While officials have not been able to placate the exact cost of the drug addiction recovery center, they were determined to put this on the ballot and then agree to an amount later.https://www.drugaddictionnow.com/2018/08/10/drug-addictio...
