Osage County board puts levy hike on ballot
Saturday, March 24, 2012
The Osage County Library Board on Friday unanimously placed a 10-cent levy increase on the August ballot in Osage County to make repairs to aging library buildings and to meet rising day-to-day operating expenses.
The action was taken after the Missouri River Regional Library Board of Trustees recommended that its two taxing entities — the Osage County Library Board and the Jefferson City/Cole County Board — ask voters in the two counties to approve the 10-cent levy increase.
The Jefferson City/Cole County Board will meet Tuesday to discuss the proposed levy increase. The meeting is scheduled 6 p.m. in the MRRL annex board room.
