CCPA Awarded by State Rep. Tim Ginter

Friday, November 3rd 2017

State Rep. Tim Ginter stopped by the October meeting of the Columbiana County Port Authority to present an award for administration of the Drug-Free Workforce Community Initiative.  The Initiative was a public-private partnership between the Ohio Dept. of Mental Health and Addiction Services and Working Partners to help businesses draft drug-free workplace policies.  The $20,000 grant was awarded to the county’s Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, which asked the Port Authority to develop and administer the program.  Columbiana County was No. 1 in the state for the work that was accomplished. 

Rep. Ginter is shown presenting a Resolution from Gov. Kasich and a Commendation on behalf of The General Assembly of The State of Ohio House of Representatives to Penny Traina, CEO of the Port Authority and Marcy Patton, MHRSB’s Executive Director.
