Lisbon-Sussex library talks will resumeTown, Library boards battle over Haass land. (Sussex Sun, 5/20/2013)

Excerpt:  The existing agreement will expire in 2014. Beginning in 2015, the agreement converts to a year-to-year contract that either community can cancel within the year. Library Board members and staff have said a longer-term agreement is necessary in order to facilitate future capital and operational planning of the library.

According to the article, the Town of Lisbon contributes $355,000, and the Village of Sussex contributes $350,000 to the annual operation of the Pauline Haass Public Library.

The revenue amounts taken from the 2011 Wisconsin Public Library Service Data.
