Zoo Is Worried About Deficit And Funding From City

Cherry Brook Zoo is facing a deficit of 150 thousand dollars. The Director of Development at the zoo, Linda Collrin calls that a huge problem.
Collrin is worried about what might happen to funding from the city in next year's budget. 

The zoo has been drawing on its growth and enhancement fund but that is now down from 650 thousand dollars to 150 thousand. 

There is no guarantee the zoo will get funding from the city next year and Collrin tells CHSJ News she's worried about the budget crunch facing Common Council.
