Rowan County Budget Improves

The Rowan County Fiscal Court has given preliminary approval to a new budget of nearly 9.8 million dollars. Magistrates heard a first reading of the spending plan last week.

Judge Executive Jim Nickell says revenues are up slightly because more people are working in the county. He says the improved financial outlook enables Rowan to provide a 2% pay hike for county employees…

Nickell says the proposed new budget includes a carryover balance of nearly half a million dollars.
