WREXHAM Council is facing a predicted £100,000 shortfall from car parking.
Financial figures for 2012/13 show £50,000 of that is due to a reduction in fine income.
The remaining £50,000 was blamed on reductions in ticket machine income.
As a whole the local authority’s environment department faces a deficit of £290,000 for the current financial year.
Savings of £397,000 were identified and they have been included in the 2012/13 budget for transport. But to date only £207,000 of those savings have been achieved through retendering exercises leaving the remaining shortfall of £190,000.
A report will go before the Guildhall’s customers, performance and resources scrutiny committee on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, a deficit of £400,000 is being predicted in the amount raised by Wrexham Council through its commercial estates.
Reasons for the shortfall include the vacation of Redwither Central on the Wrexham Industrial Estate as the local authority prepares to sell it off.
It has also been partly blamed on the council’s decision to terminate the lease of a company based at Redwither Tower to enable future lettings as well as concessions given on other lets in 2012/13.
A further £108,000 shortfall has been caused by pressures on the public offices’ and culture and heritage budgets.
The council is also expecting a shortfall of £392,000 in the amount it raises through planning fees.
