Allen County Court Clerk Dina Morrison and District Judge Daniel Creitz appeared before county commissioners Tuesday morning asking for an 8% budget increase for 2020.

Morrison said the reason for the increase was a rising number of cases involving indigent defendants, whose attorneys need to be reimbursed for their work. 

“I am asking for a $38,429 increase,” Morrison said. “We are looking to increase reimbursements from defendants. We have had more and more of these cases. The caseload has steadily increased every year.”
