The FOX 8 I-Team has found out that possible budget cuts could be coming to Cuyahoga County. All Cuyahoga County offices are reportedly asked to propose budgets with ten-percent cuts. Budget hearings begin next week.

The following statement from county spokesperson Mary Louise Madigan was released to the FOX 8 I-Team:

“We inherited some serious financial challenges. We are preparing a fiscally responsible budget that reflects our priorities. Cuyahoga County has pressing and urgent needs. People need services and we need to help provide for them. But at the same time, we need to look to our future and to invest in building our community and making life better for our residents.  In everything we do we have to balance both. Choices need to be made and we are in the midst of working through those.”
