Budget Commission

UNION COUNTY BUDGET COMMISSION
(1911-PRESENT)

Established in 1911 by the Ohio General Assembly, each county budget commission consists of the county auditor, prosecuting attorney, and the mayor of the largest municipality in the county.  In 1915, the county treasurer replaced the mayor as a member.  The commission annually examines the budgets of taxing districts (county, municipal, townships, and special districts) within the county to insure that the taxes levied are within legal limits.  Should the commission change a budget, the respective taxing district can appeal the decision to the board of tax appeals.  The auditor serves as secretary of the budget commission.
