Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning Chairman Gary Chidester appeared before fiscal court Tuesday to make the same plea for increased funding that he made to Danville City Commission last Monday.
Chidester told magistrates P&Z needs the fiscal court and city commission to each pitch in an additional $18,000. Both bodies, which already agreed to contribute $49,000, promised an additional $10,500 after it was projected the office would see around $24,000 less in revenue from permits.
Chidester said slow business through the first part of the year has brought in only $15,000 of around $60,000 that was projected for the entire year, with the slowest months, January and February, yet to come.
Chidester told magistrates they needed to make the decision about whether to contribute the additional $18,000 before releasing the additional $10,500 previously budgeted.
