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

Most city leaders found last week’s goal-setting session for Marion government an eye-opener to a host of serious issues facing the municipality. The city’s top official took it a step further. “It’s depressing,” said Mayor Jared Byford following last Thursday’s three-hour meeting billed by City Administrator Adam Ledford as the first step to fixing an array of problems. “It almost made me sick to my stomach.” What Byford and others found disturbing were the dozens of concerns brought to light and inventoried for the first time with virtually everyone in city government in the same room.
