What's news this week in Crittenden County...

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.
