Harlan County leaders look to cut spending

HARLAN, Ky. (WYMT) - Officials in Harlan County are looking for ways to cut spending.

Judge-Executive Joe Grieshop says the county needs to start watching its spending now or it will have issues in the future.

On Tuesday, county officials discussed rescinding an attempt to limit the spending of county agencies by $5,000 without approval from the fiscal court.

Critics say the stipulation was interfering with operational purchases like food for the jail, fuel and gravel.
