Riverside Dealing With Budget Shortfall

Riverside Health Care Facilities is projecting a budget shortfall for the coming year.

President Allan Katz says it's forced them to take some steps to offset the 662-thousand dollar deficit.

It includes deferring some travel and other discretionary spending.

Some non-urgent capital expenditures and the filling of some vacant positions will be held off as well.

Katz says given the current economic climate, they're not expecting to see additional dollars from the province.
