LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The City of Lake Charles is projecting a $700,000 deficit for the upcoming proposed budget. That's compared to last year's $2.7 million.

Officials expect to end this fiscal year with $24 million in the general fund.

The finance department is presenting the city's budget proposal at a council meeting on Tuesday.

Officials say the retirement contribution continues to drain city coffers.

KPLC's Lee Peck will have more on later editions.
