 County leaders seek input on how to use money


The U.S. and Ohio flags fly in front of the Crawford County Courthouse.

Brad DeCamp said he believes it’s important that the people directly affected by the opioid crisis have a say in how money from a settlement with drug manufacturers is used in Crawford County.

That’s one of the reasons DeCamp, executive director of the Crawford-Marion Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services, will lead a public informational meeting at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the lower level conference room of the Crawford County Courthouse.

Officially, it will be a meeting of Crawford County commissioners, though DeCamp will lead the session.

“It’s just an opportunity for people to voice their opinions,” commissioner Doug Weisenauer said.

Meeting will include an ‘overview’

The One Ohio memorandum of understanding, or MOU, that the state negotiated with the pharmaceutical companies will be reviewed at the meeting, said DeCamp, whom Crawford County commissioners appointed as the county’s representative to a regional board created under the terms of the settlement.
