Correction

The statement made in the paper last week that 49 percent of the county budget is allocated to the sheriff’s department and jail is incorrect. The sentence should have said that the sheriff’s department and jail expenditures combined constitute about 49 percent of the general fund budget. The sentence appeared in District 4 Commissioner Nick Washburn’s statement concerning the 2018 fiscal year budget. The mistake was an editing error, and not Commissioner Washburn’s.
