Up to 50 Floyd County employees could be out of a job under a plan to close the county‘s budget gap.

County officials are looking at a nearly $2 million deficit that will need to be closed and officials are mulling over a plan.

That plan would include the possibility of taking out a loan and having a tax to pay it off or laying off employees.

County Councilman Jim Wathen says about 1/3 of the issue can be tied to the expenses of the David Camm and William Clyde Gibson trials but some can be connected to things like the $800,000 purchase of land from Northside Christian Church for a proposed park.

The issue will be discussed at a special meeting Thursday evening at 5:00 p.m. at the Pineview Government Center on Corydon Pike
