On Tuesday morning on WCBC's Dave Norman Program, Allegany County Administrator Jason Bennett was a guest and discussed the recent news of a budget deficit of approximately $10 million. Bennett discussed one of the major causes of the current deficit – rising EMS costs with the lack of volunteers joining the emergency response agencies around the county due to increasing requirements to become an EMT.
