One Eastern KY Sheriff's office could be facing layoffs.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office could be facing layoffs.

Johnson County Sheriff Dwayne Price says that they were getting $80,000 from the Paintsville School Board to collect taxes, but now the board has decided to pay half that amount to the city.

The sheriff says they have asked for help from the judge executive to replace the money in their budget because without it they may have to lay off four of their seven deputies.
