Ohio Historical Society to cut 52 jobs



The Associated Press

COLUMBUS - The Ohio Historical Society will eliminate 52 jobs and add $1 to the admission cost at most sites because of budget problems, officials said.

Ten employees will lose their jobs in Columbus and 12 jobs will be cut at sites throughout the state, said spokeswoman Kathy Hoke. The other positions are vacant or filled by employees expected to retire soon.

The increase in prices will start July 1. Operating hours during off-peak seasons will be reduced and Statehouse tours will be changed, though visitors should not notice changes this summer, Hoke said.

The nonprofit's budget for fiscal year 2005 is $21.9 million. The state cut funding by $385,000 last year.
