Update: Bastrop officials respond to revenue shortfall report

Posted: Updated:

BASTROP, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Bastrop leaders are responding to a recent city audit report. The mayor says the city is fairing extremely well despite the country coming out of a recession.

A report shows an over budgeting of the sewer fee funds. But, the mayor says the city's spending plan has been amended to reflect the actual cost. Bastrop leaders were expecting three funding sources to build a lagoon for a DG Foods processing plant.

They received state money and a grant, but did not receive the third pot of money. The mayor says that's why it seems like the city fell short.
