BACKGROUND:

The City of Farmers Branch, Town of Addison, City of Carrollton, City of Coppell and the Dallas County Criminal District Attorney’s Office are entering into an interlocal cooperation agreement for Mental Health and Justice Systems Assessment.

The City of Farmers Branch along with Addison, Carrollton and Coppell cities will each pay an equivalent portion of the cost for services in the amount of approximately $25,000 each.
