At its October meeting, the Board of Directors of the Delaware Area Chamber of Commerce voted to endorse the Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities .4-mill continuous levy that voters will see on the ballot in November. This levy will replace the .56 mills that will expire in 2021.
The DCBDD is part of the county’s safety net for families that deal with disabilities. The DCBDD coordinates essential services that allow individuals of all ages meet their potential, provide respite for caretakers, and ensure that the extraordinary quality of life for which Delaware County is noted extends to all its residents.
The Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities serves more residents per capita than any board in the state. While growth brings amazing opportunities, it also brings challenges to our agencies. Delaware County has a rich tradition of acting as stewards to its neighbors by supporting the organizations that help the most vulnerable.
The Chamber urges voters to support the DCBDD on Nov. 6.
