A workshop was held for the upcoming fiscal year budget at the Dalhart City Council meeting Tuesday evening. 

City Manager James Stroud said he had received input from each of the city departments and that this was the time for the council to give input. Councilman Brian Brewer said he would like to see additional funding for the police department to help with officer retention. 

“I would like to get our police department more money to keep our police officers here,” Brewer said. “I would like to get a pay raise for our police officers so we can keep them longer than a year after their training and then they leave.”
