Geneva County Budget Dilemma

Over the past year, Geneva County Sheriff Greg Ward says he's lost several veteran officers due to money.

Ward made those comments at the quarterly meeting of county and city elected officials.

With a starting salary of just over $10 an hour, Sheriff Ward says it's hard to find qualified applicants.

Probate Judge Fred Hamic says Geneva County has become a training ground for those who find higher salaries in surrounding communities.

"How are we going to get people to work law enforcement and such? We must try and come up with revenue sources," said Judge Hamic.

Judge Hamic says he'll continue to look for revenue sources to keep experienced employees from leaving.
