Huntington's financial problems can be stated simply: the city is spending more than it's taking in.

The city is headed toward insolvency, financial advisor Todd Samuelson said, a point where it can no longer pay its bills - or its employees.

The city's operating balance, which should be at about $1 million, was just $650,000 coming into 2009; it will sink to $200,000 at the end of 2009.

"Any one emergency can eat up $200,000 very quickly," said Samuelson, from the Indianapolis-based financial consultant company Umbaugh.
