Community Library Soap Opera Continues

Link to October 20 West of the I post, "Salem may consider library board make-up again".

Excerpt: Chairman Linda Valentine said she will put the issue on the November meeting agenda for consideration.

Meanwhile, the board heard from town attorney Richard Scholze that state statutes do require that if a new agreement is written for the library, it should have the board representation apportioned by population of the member municipalities. That would entitle Salem to four representatives. Each member municipality — Salem, Randall, Twin Lakes, Paddock Lake and Silver Lake — currently has two representatives on the board. Under a population-apportioned board, some municipalities would likely lose members.
