The Superintendent of Muskingum County Starlight Programs met with County Commissioners Thursday.

They discussed the possible decrease in the amount of tax dollars the organization receives from a levy. It could be as much as $2.5 million.  Superintendent John Hill says he feels the residents of Muskingum County appreciate their financial responsibility.

"We feel that taxpayers in Muskingum County certainly appreciate the services that we provide and I think also appreciate the fact that we're not coming back every two to three years for additional tax dollars."

The meeting also included talk about waivers systems, waiting lists and fiscal projections. Hill explained that their program's families rarely rely on the paid services, which saves taxpayers and starlight money each year.

"We expressed that our families have a history of taking care of their own and not relying on paid services, and that saves our program and taxpayers in our County. Hundreds of thousands of dollars every year."

The commissioners have taken the issue under advisement
