Maintenance of Effort: Thank "the powerful Madison library lobby"
Link to July 19 Sheboygan Press letter to the editor, "Don't let library system lose Mead".
Excerpt: The easy solution is to simply ignore the state statute. Is the Department of Public Instruction going to take any legal action? Obviously no. Why would they want to enforce a statute that will severely damage library service in two counties?
The second solution is to have the Ozaukee and Sheboygan county boards request the State Division for Libraries to waive the three-year average requirement. (Signed, Warren Stumpe, Mequon)
