Lee County budget in good shape

Lee County officials say their finances are in good shape halfway through the fiscal year.

Revenues are exceeding what they projected, but they are concerned that they could face a budget shortfall in the coming months.

"I'm more worried about the second half because we had a real hit on our health insurance cost here in the last few weeks,” said Ron Rabun, County Manager. “Our health insurance for new employees is really up a lot and so we're going to have to trim our sales in a little bit of the second half year to pay for those increase premium amounts."

Ron Rabun says that hit could force the county to put some projects on hold.
