PAAC visits city council to offer partnership

CIRCLEVILLE — Representatives for the Pickaway Addiction Action Coalition (PAAC) made a presentation at City Council this week offering their expertise, resources and partnerships to help the city navigate their funds received from the Opioid Settlement funding.

All told, Circleville will receive $700,000 over the next 18 years, with an annual payment of about $32,000 a year. The money is part of a larger $808 million agreement with the three largest opioid distributors in the state that was completed in September 2021.

Susan Metzger, community engagement coordinator for PAAC, shared some of the initiatives PAAC has completed since they received a $1.2 million drug free communities grant in 2021.
