Sheriff explains increase in law enforcement budget
By Jared Speckman
Multiple department heads met with the county commission to discuss proposed budgets.
Sheriff Jeff Herrig’s budget came in higher than last year’s proposal. Herrig said that part of the reason for the uptick in the budget was that one extra deputy was budgeted. Herrig also said he budgeted for two patrol cars.
“When I have to cut the budget, I cut patrol cars first, then some overtime and then courthouse security,” Herrig said.
