Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning Commission returned Monday to the Danville City Comission to request aid in making up for a projected $30,000 budget shortfall in the new fiscal year that began July 1.
Chairman Gary Chidester said when P&Z first appeared before the commission in April, it was expecting a $9,000 budget carryover, but that amount turned out turned out to be only $466. Revenue from zoning permits also is projected to be off by $5,000.
Altogether, P&Z faces a $30,000 deficit.
"We've never had a deficit of this size," Chidester said. "In the past, we may have been tight, but we could always move something around. There are no places to move things right now."
Earlier this year, Chidester said P&Z requested $49,000 each from Boyle County Fiscal Court and Danville City Commision. The city budgeted the full amount requested, and the Fiscal Court allocated $40,000.
