Link to October 6 Appleton Post-Crescent editorial, "Take next step in Appleton library process".
Excerpt: It's too early to know whether Appleton should build a new library — or even if it can afford to build a new library.
That decision will be made at the end of a long process, one that will be made up of a lot of smaller decisions.
The Appleton Common Council faces one of those smaller decisions as it prepares to consider Mayor Tim Hanna's budget proposal.
The proposal, which will be released Wednesday, contains $75,000 to analyze a potential site for a new library, most likely in downtown Appleton.
It'll be money well spent and the Council would be wise to keep it in the budget.
