Anti-Drug Levy

 

In 1987 the voters of Medina County approved the Anti-Drug Levy to fund "Anti-Drug Enforcement and Related Education and Treatment Services." The Anti-Drug Levy is a five year property tax levy last approved in November 2015. For $11.00 a year on a $100,000 property valuation Medina County is a safer and healthier place to live.

 

For the fiscal year of 2018-2019 a total of $1,540,636 was spent to fund 19 programs focusing on drug prevention, drug enforcement and drug treatment. 

 

The Anti-Drug Levy funds the Medina County Drug Task Force, Drug Prevention Specialists in all the Medina County School Districts and Evidence-Based Treatment Programs.   

 

History:


The Citizens Committee on Drug Enforcement was convened on May 1, 1986.   The Committee recommended that The Medina County Commissioners establish the Medina County Drug Abuse Commission (MCDAC).  The purpose of MCDAC would be to establish guidelines for the distribution of Anti-Drug Levy funds relating to combating drug abuse/use in Medina County. 

 

The Committee made the important point that in order to be effective the cause of drug abuse/use must be treated as well as the effect and that in order to do this all three areas enforcement, education and treatment must be represented and have an opportunity to utilize funds available.
