Nationwide, city and county governments are experiencing budget woes during the latest economic turndown.

The City of Hodgenville is no exception as Mayor Terry Cruse estimates a possible shortfall of $225,000 by fiscal year’s end. Cruse delivered the grim news Monday night to Hodgenville City Council.

Cruse asked City Clerk MaDonna Hornback to “run a six-month checkup” to see where the city stands on budget.

“We’re not in a crisis, but I wanted you to know where we stood,” Cruse said.
