Councillors in the Mendips could tonight vote to set aside £200,000 because of Brexit.
The money would be used to 'mitigate any potential short-term adverse impacts' locally from leaving the EU.
District councils had already been given £35,000 over two years to support Brexit contingency planning.
A report reads: "Despite the fact that Government remains focused on securing a deal with the EU allowing both national and local government to manage a successful transition through to December 2020 it is only responsible and prudent to prepare for a Brexit scenario that has adverse impacts."
It adds that: "This is a request in principle only, and would only be utilised to mitigate against specific events arising in the event of a Brexit scenario leading to adverse impacts."
