Aggressive police work in the Coshocton area has caused a housing issue for the county. According to the Coshocton County Sheriff's Department the number of law offenders being arrested is on the rise. Although putting criminals behind bars is their priority, the increasing number of arrests are causing problems. In order to alleviate the housing issue, authorities and the county commissioners are housing inmates at jail facilities in surrounding counties. Also, county commissioners have tried to work out plans to renovate Coshocton's old county home. But problems with obtaining a grant has made a long term solution next to impossible. A tax levy is not an option that the commissioners are willing to explore at this time.
