    Marion County's economy showed signs of improvement during 2014, according to a report presented by Marion County Economic Development Director Tom Lund last week.
    Lund presented the economic development office's annual report during the Feb. 5 Marion County Fiscal Court meeting.
    According to the report, local industries announced seven projects that are expected to bring more than 500 jobs to the county. That's 227 per 10,000 people, which also meant Marion County had the highest per capita job growth of any county in Kentucky last year.
