Ontario Library Board and Municipal Authorities Negotiate on Space

The Argus Observer reports on talks that are currently underway between the city and the newly-formed Ontario Oregon Public Library Board regarding how much, if anything, the city should charge the library for use of the facility, but county officials have also made their voices heard on the issue.

“Our taxpayers stepped up to solve a problem and demonstrated a community mindshare to financially support library services,” a letter submitted to the city by Judge Dan Joyce and commissioners Louis M. Wettstein and Jim Nakano stated. “These services deserve as much funding as possible from the voter-approved tax base.”
