Construction project future uncertain

August 10, 2010

Catawba Town Council is considering delaying the town's $1.2 million construction project after financial problems forced the town to reconsider its expenses.

Catawba has a "hole in its budget" of about $220,000 from when the town appropriated the funds from its general fund to cash reserves, said Eric Davis, Catawba's interim town manager.

Town Council discussed Catawba's budgetary problems Tuesday at a special meeting.

Proceeding with the town's fire department and town hall renovations will increase the budget hole to more than $300,000, which is about one-third of Catawba's overall budget.

Town Council authorized Davis to investigate the budget and find areas where spending can be cut.
