Fiore Plan Receives Unanimous Support

Link to June 4 Wisconsin State Journal article, "Madison Library Board approves new library plan".

Excerpt: Library Board Chairman Tripp Widder said the board also formally asked the city council to hold a special session on the plan by Madison-based Fiore Cos., including how to pay for it in a time of shrinking public budgets and a national recession.

The city budget includes $1.7 million this year for a library and officials foresee spending about $18.3 million on the library in 2010.

Options for covering the remaining $23.6 million include a fundraising campaign, more city money and borrowing.
