>The general fund budget approved Monday by Defiance County commissioners shows little growth over this years appropriated amount.
The 2004 general fund budget is $9,441,184, or 1.4 percent more than the $9,309,666 set aside for this year.
This increase isnt much larger than what the countys department heads requested when they submitted their budget requests in recent weeks. Before commissioners began budget discussions, the proposed general fund budgeted amount stood at $9,481,272.
