CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Hamilton County commissioners unanimously passed the county's 2010 budget on Wednesday.
The $210 million budget reduces spending to the lowest since 1999, does not raise taxes and keeps core services in tact.
Highlights from the budget include:
"This was a difficult budget process, but all the County departments stepped up to cooperate and be creative in such difficult economic times." Hamilton County Commission President David Pepper said. "While many sacrifices were made, we were able to reduce our spending to a level not seen in a decade and still fund our top priorities of public safety and economic development. And we are living within our means."
