I am writing to encourage my fellow Licking County voters to support the Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities levy on the Nov. 8th ballot.
As a sister to someone that receives these services, it has given me a very unique perspective on just how much the agency and the service providers mean to the 1500 plus children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families.
With the support of the Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities and its dedicated staff, individuals like my brother, Mike are able to live, work, and participate as true members of our great community.
It will cost approximately 13 cents per day, or an additional $17.50 per year for the owner of a $100,000 home. The amount that Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities spends per person is the seventh lowest in the State of Ohio. They provide their outstanding services in the most efficient, yet effective, way possible to our citizens.
Please join me in voting YES for this very important tax levy.
