Tecumseh Projecting Minor Deficit

The Town of Tecumseh is projecting a minor budget deficit in 2014.

After the third quarter the finance department is projected a $19,000 deficit of the $20-million operating budget.

Town CAO Tony Haddad says the winter control budget took a huge hit last winter. “A lot of those costs that were budgeted for were grossly over spent in dealing with the harsh winter and fortunately we have expenditures in other departments within the total municipality that help to offset those costs.”

Haddad says they are still hopeful they can reach a balanced budget by the end of the year.
