The bad news is that the county government is experiencing a budget deficit.
The good news is that it's nothing they can't handle.
At least, according to Shelby County Deputy Judge Executive Rusty Newton, who said that the exact amount of the shortfall has yet to be determined.
"We have to examine that issue in a finance committee meeting that we are having next week,” he said. "We won't have those numbers until then, because it will depend upon the deficit of occupational taxes.”
