The Ross, Pickaway, Pike, Fayette, and Highland County Sheriffs have joined together to endorse the Paint Valley Mental Health Board's upcoming funding levy.
The ADAMH Board is responsible for ensuring that a comprehensive array of mental health, addiction treatment and prevention options are available to all residents of the service district.
The 10-year 1-mill Levy will appear on the May 2nd ballot. It would levy $3 per month on a property valued at $100,000.
Ross County Sheriff, George Lavender, calls the levy a top priority for law enforcement as it would provide much needed services during times of crisis. Pickaway County Sheriff, Robert Radcliff, says the levy if passed would help to meet the increasing demand for mental health recovery and addiction services.
