  • Fiscal court approves use of funds for tech school engineer

    The Marion County Fiscal Court has approved the use of its funds to hire an engineer at the Marion County Area Technology Center.

    The court previously donated $150,000 in Local Government Economic Assistance funds to Marion County Public Schools toward the renovation of the tech center. The Marion County Board of Education postponed a decision during its Jan. 25 meeting on funding an engineering position at the tech center until it received approval from the court to use LGEA funds toward that hire.

    The Marion County Area Technology Center could soon have an engineer on staff.
