Blue Earth Library Funding 14 Jun 12

The Blue Earth County Board did not address the funding of the county’s public library system during it’s meeting on Tuesday, but commissioners say there is “nothing to worry about.” This comes after the Mankato City Council voted in favor of ending the city’s tax levy for funding the Blue Earth County Library system this week. County officials say that when the issue does come before the county board, they are expected to increase the levy to cover the amount. Mankato would then decrease its levy by the same amount, which is expected to be over $500,000.
