Elyria Council approves joining One Ohio plan to divide potential opioid settlements


ELYRIA — Elyria will sign its name onto "One Ohio," a plan to divide potential opioid litigation funds across the state.

On Monday, City Council approved signing onto the agreement that would unite with the state in its ongoing opioid litigation. One Ohio, which was proposed by Gov. Mike DeWine and Attorney General Dave Yost, would take 11 percent off the top for attorney fees and then give 30 percent to local governments, 55 percent to a foundation that would address addiction run by local government leaders and 15 percent to the state.
