TRINITY — A $6.5 million budget gained the approval of Trinity City Council on Monday that will include no property tax increase, but will provide three additional sheriff’s deputies to increase law enforcement presence in the city.

City Manager Stevie Cox said the 2022-2023 Fiscal Year budget will install a vehicle and equipment assessment survey, a capital improvement plan for the next 4-10 years and one new city planner position. Cox said that the planner’s position is a result of the rapid growth the city is experiencing. One person will be designated to address current planning, while a second person will be tasked with addressing long-term planning.
