SORTA Chair Kreg Keesee says the money was discovered during a yearlong review of the agency's balance sheets.
He says the money was the result of projects that were either under budget or discontinued, as well as strong cash flows.
Even with the found money, the agency says it is bracing for projected budget shortfalls. SORTA says there could be fare increases and reduced service as soon as next year.
