Editor, The Courier:
Citizens in Athens, Hocking and Vinton Counties would be smart to support the 317 Board Renewal Levy so that neighbors who experience mental illness and substance use disorders get the support they need to be healthy.
What readers may not know is that the 317 Board also participates broadly in community affairs. A good example is the renovation and repurposing of Doctors Hospital to become the new Mary Hill Center of Nelsonville. While this project is made possible by the generous donation of the facility by OhioHealth to Integrated Services, the 317 Board played an early and critical role in facilitating the community partnership that made it happen.
We will begin a major renovation by year’s end that make a major contribution to the economic well-being of Nelsonville. You may not know that the 317 Board played a key role, but it did. Please vote yes for the 317 Board Renewal Levy.
Executive Director, Integrated Services for Behavioral Health
