Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce and Toledo Area Small Business Association (TASBA) Support Issue 3 Mental Health and Recovery Services Levy Renewal
Toledo, OH, April 11, 2022 – The boards of the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Toledo Area Small Business Association (TASBA) recently voted to support the Property Tax Renewal for Mental Health and Drug Addiction Services.
Issue 3, the 1.00-mill, 10-year property levy renewal will appear on the May 3 primary election ballot for Lucas County voters and will be used to continue to provide support for emergent mental health and substance use recovery needs.
"The negative effects of mental health and substance use disorders are far reaching, contributing to everything from homelessness and incarceration to disability and unemployment," said Brian Dicken, VP of Advocacy and Strategic Initiatives at the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Accessible treatment and support resources are critical to ensuring Lucas County residents receive the services they need to lead healthy and productive lives, which includes their ability to maintain a job."
This levy was reviewed by the Chamber's Levy Review Subcommittee, which researches and studies levy requests and makes recommendations to other Chamber committees, culminating with the Chamber and TASBA boards. This process ensures that levy requests are examined by a broad cross-section of the Chamber's membership and reflect the views of the business community. The Chamber's comprehensive levy review process includes presentations by the agencies making the request, an examination of the impact of the levy request on both the agency and taxpayers, and a review of agency financials to better understand the need behind the request.
