Policy Matters Ohio looked at the size and scope of cuts in each county and in many municipalities. We talked with city and county administrators, local elected officials and residents. On our website, there is a link for each Ohio county that describes the loss in state funding and the impact on cities, towns and services within that county. Because local newspaper clips and quotes from local officials are used, this brief is an oral history as well as a presentation of charts and graphs. The insights of those interviewed add clarity and depth to a description of hard times.
