Transcripted request: Public defender requests more, but expenses unknown

December 27, 2011

Overall, the Auglaize County public defender expects his budget to increase in 2012, but its the unknown each year that makes it hard to craft a budget.
Public Defender Gerald Siesel proposed a budget of $275,646, an increase of 3 percent for 2012 when he met recently with Auglaize County commissioners.
Line items to increase include $7,280 for a total of $34,280 in other expenses, $2,000 for a total of $6,000 in transcripts, and an increase of $600 for a total of $9,450 in rental facilities.
“I have little or no control over the increases,” Siesel said.
