Twin Lakes Committee Asks for Opinion That It Won't Be Bound By
Twin Lakes to seek DPI opinion on establishing village library. (West of the I, 4/13/2011)
Excerpt: The Twin Lakes Sewer, Health and Environment, Youth and Library Committee agreed Wednesday to seek an opinion from the state Department of Public Instruction about the viability of starting a village library.
Seeking the opinion is a requirement if the village decides it wants to separate from the joint Community Library, explained village administrator David Cox. He was speaking at a committee meeting Wednesday evening at Village Hall.
However, the village will not be bound to follow the opinion’s findings.
Despite extensive discussion on the subject of separating from the multiple municipality Community Library, the committee did not settle on a recommendation to the Village Board about the larger issue of whether to separate from the joint district. Trustee Thomas Connolly, a member of the committee, said he did not favor a separation. Trustees Aaron Karow and Mike Moran, the other members of the committee, were less committal in their comments, though both seemed to see scenarios where they would support separation.
