Hancock County OKs MRDD s ballot request

FINDLAY Hancock County commissioners yesterday approved the Hancock County Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities plan to ask voters to renew one of two levies that support the agency s operations.

In May, a five-year, 2.5-mill operating levy will be on the ballot. Connie Ament, superintendent of Blanchard Valley Center, said the levy would generate $3.8 million a year at a time when the agency is facing more cuts in state funding.

The 2.5-mill levy and a separate 1.9-mill levy provide about 63 percent of Blanchard Valley s $11 million budget.
