One big issue facing the City of Evansville during the pandemic is an $8 million budget shortfall for 2021.

Much of that lost revenue can be linked back to the Tropicana Casino being shut down, which is estimated to generate roughly $1 million a month for the city.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke joined us Wednesday morning to chat about the challenge different departments face, as well as lack of funding for area non-profits desperate for aid during these trying times.

The Evansville City Council plans on wrapping up the discussion with the 3rd round of talks Wednesday evening.
