Library Board votes to seek levy increase
Wednesday, March 28, 2012
The Jefferson City/Cole County Library Board unanimously voted to have a 10-cent levy increase placed on the Cole County ballot in August.
Tuesday’s action follows the same vote by the Osage County Library Board on Friday. Last week, the Missouri River Regional Library board of trustees recommended both boards place the tax increase on their respective county ballots.
Helen Rigdon, library director, said the levy increase would be used for repairs to main library, implementing a new bar code system and allowing the library to extend services into the rural areas of Cole and Osage Counties.
