Ohio’s auditor is warning more than a dozen cities and counties that they could be on the verge of a fiscal emergency. 

The financial health indicators report breaks down Ohio’s local governments by assigning a red, green or yellow for 17 different categories. A county or city that gets too many reds or yellows is considered to be at high risk for fiscal emergency.
