Notice of Rate Increase Next month, there will be a rate increase implemented for N/ Warren Town and County News subscriptions. In February, the rate for a yearly subscription to our newspaper will increase from $18 to $20 for a standard subscription, and from $15 to $17 for senior citizens 65+. The additional $6 charge for mailing to counties other than Warren and Polk will remain the same. Due to the growing cost of postage, paper, and printing, a small increase in our subscription rate is necessary. We have not had a price increase for subscriptions for well over a decade despite every year postage rates being raised, sometimes twice in one year. Anyone who wishes to add an additional year or more to their subscription at the current cost may use the form on the classifieds page to send in a payment. This is available until the rate increase takes place in February. '
