Albmarle Facing $2.8M Deficit

The loss of the car tax and the recent cut of state funds has left the county with a $2.8M deficit from their ~$200M annual budget. $2.7M of that is from decreased car tax revenues, a tax that provided a great deal of funding directly to localities. The county is trying to figure out what to cut, with $1.3M from the schools and $400k from the Conservation Easements Program making up a significant part of the current proposal. Peter Savodnik has the story in today’s Progress.
