County leaders met this morning to go over next year’s budget. Although it isn’t finalized, Commission Chair Mike Bilderback wants to make sure the county’s public safety departments are fully funded to keep to the community safe.
"We desperately need some turnout gear and all that remained in the budget and so that survived. That was one of things I was concerned about," Bilderback said.
Commissioners will meet again next Wednesday to finalize the budget.
