Funding for Eau Claire Library Renovation Remains in State Budget

Link to June 13 Eau Claire Leader Telegram article, "Public library earmark for $125,000 still intact.

A $125,000 earmark in the state budget for renovations to L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library began in February with conversations between Eau Claire City Councilman Dave Duax and the office of state Rep. Jeff Smith, D-Eau Claire.

The additional funding for the renovations survived the latest version of the state budget, which the Assembly passed by a 50-48 margin Saturday. It still must be approved by the state Senate and signed by Gov. Jim Doyle.
