Allegany County Legislature set to adopt 2019 county budget - more cuts made

When the Allegany County Legislature gavels into session Monday afternoon, lawmakers will vote on approving the 2019 county budget. It's likely to pass by a unanimous vote.

The legislature meets November 26th at 2 p.m. in Belmont.
