Roane County Road Superintendent Tom Hamby is having to transfer $20,000 from his hot mix budget to his diesel fuel budget.
That means less money for patching and paving roads.
Hamby said bad weather coupled with higher fuel prices have taken a toll on the fuel budget this fiscal year, which ends June 30.
“This has been the worst year I’ve had in several years with storms,” he said.
Storms during the winter led to more work because of snow and ice on the roads.
