CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Cuyahoga County Council took on the Veterans Service Commission Monday, questioning why the county-supported agency plans to spend half of its $7.5 million budget on administration.
Members of the council's Finance Committee also expressed concern
about 8.6 percent raises for commission employees. They said they want
more money devoted to the agency's mission of paying mortgages, utility
and grocery bills for veterans in need.
