Estimated resources and permanent appropriations for 2013 were approved Tuesday by Auglaize County Health Board members.
Auglaize County Health Commissioner Charlotte Parsons said the department’s overall budget of more than $1.8 million, plus more than $324,390 for Families and Children First, is a decrease of $100,000 from 2012.

Any artist is eligible to attend the workshop, as Walker specializes in helping all ability levels.
