Budget cuts continue to hit local organizations.
The Panhandle Workforce Development Board is one of those many organizations experiencing a twenty-four percent budget loss.
The Corporation for Texas Workforce Solutions will have to find alternatives for contending with the new tight budget presented to them this year. Facilities closing include Borger, Childress, Dalhart, Dumas, Hereford. Pampa, and Tulia.
Cleaning up the streets is one of the goals of the Borger Police Department.
BPDâ€™s Narcotic and Criminal Interdiction Unit just completed an aggressive campaign to crack down on illegal narcotics and street level crimes in the City of Borger.
Lt. Anthony Griffin of the BPD said that over a fourteen day span, the unit lawfully seized approximately $18,000 worth of cash, vehicles, weapons, and illegal narcotics.
In addition to the seizures, 20 arrests were made and five vehicles were seized, as they were being used in the commission of a felony crime.
