HANCOCK COUNTY, W.Va. Hancock County Commissioners proudly announced there will be no cuts to services Thursday during a meeting in which they passed their 2014 budget.
Its a budget that has about $10.5 million and has a $1.1 million carryover.
They also discussed their expenses, which have increased due to enhanced security at the courthouse. But they said much of those were off-set by additional revenue. Ultimately they say the budget is a win for Hancock County.
 I think at the time where you see a lot of budgets hurting, we are in good shape for the next four or five years, Hancock County Commissioner Dan Greathouse said. Hopefully in the next four or five years, the Marcellus Shale and other businesses will kick and our tax base will start to grow again. That's the hope."
Commissioners announced healthcare costs will remain the same.
And of course the county has a number of projects scheduled this year, like a new building for the 911 Dispatch Center.
The budget is more than $300, 0000 more than last year . Commissioners said they've saved about $13 million during the past several years.
