The Vandalia City Council will be voting next Monday on a budget that includes deficits in three areas and an overall deficit of close to $200,000.
During a work session held on Monday afternoon, Mayor Rick Gottman told aldermen that the proposed budget has deficits in the water and sewer, capital improvement and payroll funds.
The water and sewer fund deficit of $98,281, can be largely attributed to the increased cost of supplies and the replacement of water department pumps that are 30 and 40 years old.
