Part of Gov. Warner's cuts will hit Constitutional Officers. Those include your local Treasurer, Commissioner of Revenue and Circuit Court Clerk. They're all being cut 11 percent. And, the Commonwealth's Attorney will see a seven percent cut.

For Staunton's Treasurer, it's a $12,000 loss and she says you will see a difference.

"It will overall affect the city because I will have to cut out my part time person who goes after delinquent," said City Treasurer Elnora Hazlett of Staunton. I will have to cut back on postage where I can't mail out notices and I will have to look at advertising as to where I can't notify the customer."

Hazlett says she has ask City Council to make up the difference.
