COPLEY TWP.: Mary Alice Sonnhalter, board manager of community relations for Summit County's Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services, made a presentation Wednesday to Copley trustees to garner support for the agency's upcoming levy request.
Summit County ADM is asking voters to renew a six-year, 2.95-mill levy on Nov. 5.
Sonnhalter said voters first approved the levy in 2007 and that renewal won't raise current taxes - $7.50 per month on a home valued at $100,000.
If approved, the issue would generate approximately $33 million, 75 percent of the board's budget.
Sonnhalter said that in Summit County, "ADM programs touch about 50,000 persons a year."
The board's mandate is to see that treatment and support services are available for adults, teens and children with mental illness and/or alcohol and drug addiction, she said.
