ELECTION RESULTS: Mental Health Levy Renewal Passes

11/7/18 – 7:44 A.M.

Voters in Allen County and two neighboring counties approved a 1-mill, five-year renewal levy for mental health and addiction recovery services on Tuesday. The levy benefits the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize and Hardin counties. It provides about half of the board’s annual revenue and generates about $3.2 million a year.

The levy pays for mental health treatment, grief counseling, suicide prevention programs, and addiction recovery services in the three counties.
