Juvenile court requests more funding
Placeholder Image
Judge Lindsay Burton of the Dawson County Juvenile Court requested a significant budget increase during last week's board of commissioners work session. The requested amount totaled $24,200 and is needed to cover child and parent attorney costs, as well as court reporter fees. The additional funds are needed due to the large number of serious dependency cases this year, according to Burton.
