LGF has same percentage split, but amount decreased

The percentages of distribution remain the same for Auglaize County government entities, but the amount they are getting through Local Government Funds has been almost cut in half.

The Auglaize County commissioners recently approved an alternate plan of distribution for Local Government Funds and local government revenue assistance funds as proposed by the county’s budget commission. 

For 2013, the county was expected to receive more than $1.25 million, an amount that is to increase by more than $583 in 2014, but the amounts are about half of what the county had previously been receiving.
