MEDINA — Medina County has been improperly funding drug education and treatment programs because of an "administrative oversight," possibly for decades, the Medina Gazette reports.
County voters first approved an anti-drug levy in 1987 for law enforcement programs. But some of the money has been given to other agencies and their education and treatment efforts, which is inappropriate, the newspaper said.
The mistake was discovered after Medina County Drug Abuse Commission Director Brian Nowak retired. The LCADA Way, Ohio Guidestone, Cathy’s House and the Recovery Center of Medina County are among the agencies that could lose funding, the newspaper said.
“We will get it straightened out,” county Commissioner Pat Geissman told the Gazette.
