|Get prepared for Tuesday's election with The Crittenden Press.|
An almost 10 percent increase in anticipated tax receipts will not mean any lavish spending for Crittenden County government, but it will provide a pay hike for county employees of at least 2 percent, and provide a small cushion for unforeseen expenses. A reassessment of soil classes in Kentucky will have a marked affect on the county budget. Crittenden County Judge-Executive Perry Newcom and the budget committee have estimated a boost of at least $40,000 in new taxes for the 2016 general fund.
