Sandusky County to idle 2 jail officers, dispatcher

FREMONT Sandusky County Sheriff Kyle Overmyer said budget cuts will force the layoff of two corrections officers and a dispatcher at the end of the week.

The sheriff said county commissioners asked him to cut $75,000 from his budget on top of previous cuts. Countywide, commissioners asked offices operated with general fund money to reduce their spending by $354,000.

The sheriff said the layoffs were based on seniority, and he hopes the officers can be rehired.
