ASHLAND — Ashland County commissioners approved a $17 million general fund budget for 2023, an appropriation plan that allows for several departments to increase employee wages.

"I think the biggest (thing) obviously is the wage increases. I think it was 3 to 5 percent was the range that departments were getting on the wage side, obviously because of inflation. That was probably the biggest bump up on all the departments," Commissioner Denny Bittle said.
