Representatives from Richland County Children Services and the Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging Inc. met with the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Richland County Tuesday to ask for their support of their respective levies.

The Senior Services 5-year, 1-mill renewal levy will generate $1.9 million annually for the agency. If approved it will allow the agency to continue to provide homecare services, transportation, and home delivered meals.

The renewal levy first appeared on the ballot in 2008.

The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging Inc., serves older adults and disabled adults in a nine-county region.

Richland County Children Services 1-mill, 10-year replacement levy, would also generate $1.9 million annually for the agency. If approved the levy would allow the agency to continue providing services to children and families. It also allows the agency to leverage federal dollars.

In 2012, the agency conducted 2,860 investigations. The agency investigates suspected child abuse and neglect. It also provides foster care, and adoption services.

Both levies will cost the owner of $100,000 home about $35 a year.
