BVC Renewal Levy Passes By Wide Margin

In the primary election on Tuesday, Hancock County voters overwhelmingly approved a renewal levy for the Blanchard Valley Center – Hancock County Board of Developmental Disabilities, as well as a replacement levy for the Hancock Park District.

“To know that the community supports our mission and values the work that we do each and every day – providing services and supports to people with developmental disabilities in Hancock County – means the world to us,” said Nadine Weininger with the Blanchard Valley Center.



Nadine added that they appreciate the confidence the community has in them to provide quality services and they’ll continue doing just that.
