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

On Monday, a $1.38 million spending plan for the City of Marion was introduced at a special meeting, presenting a tax increase and cuts in services in order to meet the increased cost of municipal government. Despite the implications of the lean budget proposal for the coming fiscal year, discussion focused on fewer than $10,000 for three line item appropriations.
