At their regular board meeting Wednesday, July 20, the Geauga County Board of Mental Health bemoaned the Geauga County Board of Commissioners’ 1-0 vote in favor of a resolution asking for a mental health levy, which resulted in the motion dying for lack of a second, effectively denying their request.

At their meeting Tuesday, July 19, Commissioner Tim Lennon voted in favor of the mental health board’s ask, while Commissioner Jim Dvorak did not vote, arguing that it “boggles some taxpayers’ minds” that the mental health board has agreed they had too much money, agreed to reduce their levy from .5 to .25, but was asking the commissioners to approve the levy a year early. Mr. Dvorak told them he was “leaning toward seeing (them) next year.”
