Despite red flags raised by Sheriff Bryan Murphy, Allen County commissioners passed a 2020 budget Tuesday.
Murphys biggest concern is that the jail has 17 employees for whom commissioners have ordered Murphy give 3% cost of living raises. Thats a tall order when his budget was increased by less than 1%.
Commissioners raised the sheriffs department budget by $1,192 to $1,246,315.
