Learning to live with less. That's the policy local county, city, village and township officials are incorporating as the allocations at the state level continue to shrink.
At the peak of local government fund allocations in 2008, Huron County received $936,027. In 2013, that has been slashed to $426,840.
The city of Norwalk received $625,369 in local government funds four years ago and will watch that funding fall to $285,162 in 2013.
In Norwalk Township, local-government funding was once $18,914 in 2008. That will shrink to $8,624 next year.
