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.

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