NEW ALBANY —
Police asking for gasoline funding
The New Albany Police Department is also on pace to fall short of its budget unless the council agrees to appropriate funding for gasoline expenses.
The department and administration are requesting $127,200 appropriation from the riverboat fund of which $87,000 would be used for gasoline expenses.
The remaining $40,200 would be used to pay for vacation sell back and specialty pay.
Zurschmiede said the request doesn’t come as a surprise either as the council had been alerted by the department previously that it would likely have a shortfall in its gasoline budget line item.
The council meeting is slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. in the third-floor Assembly Room of the City-County Building.
