HAMILTON, Ohio -- The Butler County commissioners are hammering out a budget for 2014.
The commissioners are trying to keep spending at 2013 levels, which is just under $80 million.
The sheriff's department makes up the largest chunk of spending.
Sheriff Richard Jones told 9 On Your Side he is not asking for an increase in funding, which will remain around $30 million for 2014.
At the same time, the sheriff's department could potentially gain additional funding through plans to take over 911 dispatching duties for the City of Hamilton in the next few months.
