Commissioners request levy reduction

Wood County Commissioners James Carter, Doris Herringshaw, and Joel Kuhlman, working with Job and Family
Services Director Dave Wigent, have requested the Wood County Budget Commission to once again reduce
collections of the Adult and Protective Services levy by 50 percent during 2015.
This reduction will continue to save county taxpayers roughly $1.83 million.
The JFS staff has been responsible with expenditures relating to this levy, which is what has enabled the
reduced collection for another year.
This is the fourth time that the commissioners and JFS in cooperation with the Budget Commission have
been able to voluntarily reduce levy collection since 2000.
