ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's Water, Gas and Light Commission is struggling with a multi-million dollar budget deficit.
They're paying more than anticipated for electricity and revenue they planned on from the sale of propane actually went to last year's budget. That coupled with companies closing and downsizing has led to a $2.8 Million shortfall.
"We're losing revenue in terms of business closings as well because we're losing gas revenue, electric revenue and water revenue and we're not seeing any new construction really coming on the system to replace that we are losing," said WG&L Assistant General Manager Lee Hauesler.
Households are also using less water because of watering statewide restrictions.
