The ARC of LaGrange County asked county commissioners to consider a 3 percent budget increase at Monday’s meeting. The increase will amount to $3,600 and bring ARC’s total to $123,600.

ARC will experience a deficit of some $153,000 for 2015.

ARC Executive Director Deb Seman told commissioners that the organization’s request will fall outside of the county tax levy limitations. It will provide for a 1 percent increase in wages for salaried staff and a 2 to 3 percent increase for hourly workers.

ARC serves about 80 intellectually or physically challenged persons on a daily basis and up to 325 annually.
