More medical funding for Trumbull County Sheriff's Office

CORTLAND, Ohio -

Trumbull County commissioners approved more funding for jail inmate medical care.

At a meeting held at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds Wednesday, commissioners gave the green light to the Trumbull County Sheriff's Office to spend an additional $4,000 a month on medical expenses.

Commissioner Frank Fuda says the money is needed to pay for rising expenses with the rising number of inmates needing treatment related to the opioid and drug epidemic.

The sheriff's office also received authorization to put a new three-year contract for a physician or medical care out for bid.
