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

An informational meeting hosted by Crittenden County Board of Education to share the rationale for a proposed “recallable nickel” for school construction turned out to be more of an inquisition. A vocal opposition, mostly farmers who would be among the most affected by the property tax, raised more questions than could be answered at last week’s public forum. But school officials say that was part of the purpose for the public forum – find out what taxpayers need to know about the proposed 5.8-cent increase in the school tax before moving forward.
