MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) - The state auditor has released Mansfield from fiscal emergency after deciding the northeastern Ohio city can resume operations without oversight by a state fiscal control commission.

Mansfield city government had deficits of nearly $10 million in 2010 and over $3 million in 2009. Ohio law requires cities and government entities such as public school districts to balance their budgets.

Auditor Dave Yost announced Monday he is lifting the city’s fiscal emergency status, which was declared in August 2011 because of continued budget shortfalls.

Yost put Mansfield city schools under a fiscal emergency in December after the school board passed a resolution saying it couldn’t come up with a plan to fix the district’s financial problems.
