County mulls cuts to library funding

Email

Crow Wing County commissioners are considering taking advantage of a legislative change to funding it is mandated to provide to the public library system.

The state is allowing counties to reduce funding by 10 percent. That’s $56,000 from a $565,000 budget; the county’s library funding would decrease to $509,127 for 2012. The lower funding is figured into the county’s 2012 budget, which calls for a 2.37 percent decrease in the $34.8 million levy.
