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.
