Preservation of the health, safety, and welfare of our county residents is a responsibility we take seriously. Fatal drug overdoses keep rising in Ohio with the Ohio Department of Health recently reporting a 20% increase. The impact is being felt in our community at an alarming rate.
ere in Lorain County (population 306,000), new research estimates 35,000 residents are misusing or abusing opioids*. Last year, 132 overdose deaths occurred. Some of the dead included grandparents. An alarming number of infants are being born displaying withdrawal symptoms due to drug exposure. 75% of our children being placed in foster care in the county is due to parental substance abuse.
Fentanyl is now being mixed with all kinds of street drugs triggering overdoses and death. It is alarming to report that the federal government has assigned two designations to our county because it has become one of the leading drug trafficking counties in the nation. This drug activity is harmful to our families, our children and our local economy ($200-million/year negative economic burden*).
This Public Awareness Report will provide you with the latest information on the severity of the toll the drug epidemic is having on our county. We continue to work with law enforcement and those on the front line providing treatment. This is a community crisis that we, as a community, must address for the sake of our families and the future of our county.

NOTICE: Please be advised that Crestlane Drive will be closed on October 15th for approximately 10 calendar days to allow for the replacement of the culvert at the Martins Run ditch. The project is being constructed by Carron Asphalt of Glenwillow Ohio at a cost of $49,200 which is being funded with a grant from the Lorain County Storm Water District.
UPDATE: Crestlane Culvert project is delayed due to a conflict with a gas main. The gas company will relocate the gas line this week (hopefully).
