What's news in Marion this week...

The City of Marion and Crittenden
Fiscal Court this week passed their
budgets for the coming year. Find out
more in this week's Press.
Council members on Monday OK’d a $3 million budget for the City of Marion for 2016 as well as a pay plan that gives all regular city employees a 1.5 percent raise. But the actions did not occur without dissent and the need for a tie-breaking vote cast by the mayor. There was also the suggestion of a rate increase for water and sewer services in order to balance the separate funds.
