Dallas Deficit Reaches $41.5 Million

Dallas City Hall now expects a $41.5 million deficit this fiscal year.

To reach even that number, many city departments cut back and also tapped into savings to balance projected losses.

Street services lowered its budget by nearly $4 million and the sanitation and police departments cut their spending by nearly $3 million.

City manager said the cuts are a necessary response to a difficult economy.
