(KSL News) Davis County is trying to balance a budget shortfall.
There are two-and-a-half months left in this budget year, but already the county is short on money.
The Deseret Morning News reports a recent internal memo from a sheriff's office commander to patrol deputies says the fuel budget is starting to wane, meaning deputies should limit patrols to 75 miles a shift.
Meanwhile, the Davis County Board of Commissions had to put plans for a North Salt Lake public works project on hold because it couldn't find low enough bids.
Officials say they should be able to make up the shortfall by the end of the year.
