High Gas Prices Affecting City Budgets

Posted: Updated:

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. - High gas prices have affected not only consumers but they are also putting a pinch on city budgets.

Hendersonville's Finance Director said the city is already idling about 15 percent over this year's fuel budget of about $405,700. That's in spite of a $10,000 bump from last year's budget to cover gas and fuel costs.

The director also said that if departments go over their fuel budgets they must report to the city's Finance Committee and may have to eliminate other things to help offset the extra costs.
