It's budget time for county commissioners around Ohio and Highland County is looking at the possibility of a tighter budget in 2018.
Commissioner Shane Wilkin, in an interview with iHeart Media's Will Parr, says he was hoping Highland County would receive more state help. Medicaid/MCO Tax will be cut by $800,000 per year. Wilkin says even though the state will provide some "lump sum payments" to the county, which he says won't last, leaving the county to fill the hole.
The commissioners get a budget from the county auditor, then hear request from departments as to how money might be allocated.
