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

It appears Crittenden County taxpayers will be on the hook for an additional $137,500 in order to keep the local ambulance service operating. The money, according to Judge-Executive Perry Newcom, will be found through cuts and a reduction in other subsidies, not new taxes.
