Venice’s City Council yesterday announced that they are running nearly $1.6M short in funds to build a new public safety building.

City leaders say as of now, there’s a large gap between the cost and the funds still available from a $16M bond sale that was done to finance the project.

The building is still set to be done in August of next year- that has been a firm deadline from the beginning.
The council is set to vote next week to increase the project budget- by what means has yet to be discussed.
