  • Court receives budgets from four special districts

    The Marion County Fiscal Court accepted the 2013-14 budgets from three local special districts and from the Lincoln Trail Area Development District during its June 6 meeting.
    Special districts have received added attention in the past year, in part because of efforts by State Auditor Adam Edelen to raise awareness about those districts.
