Library considers levy increase
The Kitsap Regional Library Board of Trustees authorized library staff to develop a financial plan that could lead to a public vote on increased library funding in November 2010.
Per the board’s guidelines, the levy must be less than the levy proposed in a 2007 ballot measure, and should pay for restoration of operating hours cut in recent years.
The levy increase request should also allow additional spending on library materials available to the public, as well as fund technology enhancements.
KRL, which includes nine branches, has not put a levy to voters since its levy increase was defeated in 2007.
The board has until Aug. 10 to decide whether to place the levy proposal on the ballot.Contact Bainbridge Island Review Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-842-6613.
