I would like to
urge all Portage County voters to vote "For" Issue 3, a 1-mill renewal levy for the Mental Health & Recovery Board of Portage County. This is not a tax increase. This renewal is also not increased by the elimination of the rollback property taxes. This funding provides many services to county residents, including 24-hour crisis services, prevention education and treatment of substance and sexual abuse, and counseling and treatment for mental illness for all age groups. The cost to owners of a $100,000 house remains the same $2.50 per month. This levy was originally passed in 1983.
