MILLBURY — Lake Township, and other Ohio entities that sign on, could receive a “significant” amount of money from the OneOhio Opioid Settlement agreement.

“We’re one small piece of the settlement pie here,” said Police Chief Mark Hummer, who is also the township administrator, after a meeting earlier this month.

“It’s $800 million divided amongst all the political subdivisions,” he said. “Every political entity in the state of Ohio — that passed a resolution and took part in the legal action — stands to gain from the settlement amount.”
