The Erie County Office of Children and Youth will see an increase in staffing.
Erie County Council voted in favor of an ordinance which would allow more than $800,000 for the state approved positions.
The vote came after a committee was formed and presented a report showing more people are needed to adequately handle the increased caseload.
Council also voted unanimously for a domestic violence prosecutor.
The new position was created after an increase of domestic violence cases were reported during the pandemic.
