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

Taxpayers are now forking out about a quarter of what they once paid to keep Crittenden County Detention Center open, freeing up hundreds of thousands in tax revenue to benefit everyone living outside the walls of the jail. In the fiscal year that ended June 30, Jailer Robbie Kirk needed only $317,000 transferred from the county’s general fund to balance the lockup’s 2017-18 budget.
