Marion Commissioners to participate in multi-county legislative meeting

County commissioners from Crawford, Delaware. Knox, Marion, Morrow, Sandusky, Seneca, Union, and Wyandot will be meeting on March 16, 2015 at Rosa & Rocco’s with area members of the Ohio General Assembly to discuss the state/county partnership and its ability to deliver vital services to the citizens of Ohio during a period of increasing responsibilities and limited resources.

“It is essential that state and county governments work together closely and cooperatively for the good of their mutual constituents, the people of Ohio,” said Commissioner Ken Stiverson in announcing the upcoming regional meeting.

“Counties are the primary agents of the state in administering justice and prosecuting criminals; providing health and human services to needy citizens; managing the property tax system; improving infrastructure to foster economic development; and, providing a myriad of other important governmental services to improve the quality of life for all Ohioans,” stated Commissioner Andy Appelfeller.

“It is vital that the partnership between the state and county government be reaffirmed and strengthened,” stated Commissioner Dan Russell.  “Ohio’s county governments will be seeking a commitment from the Administration and the General Assembly to county government fiscal security as one of the centerpieces of Ohio’s SFY 2016/2017 biennial budget.”
