MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - Bibb County commissioners are one step closer to finalizing the 2014 budget.
During Wednesday's work session, county leaders found they had a $7 million deficit. It comes after the county took on my departments from the city, like recreation.
Commissioner Joe Allen tells 41NBC the board approved to take that $7 million out of the county's reserves.
Allen says there will be a public hearing later this month. He expects the budget will be finalized sometime in July.
