Decision Delayed on Request for Portage Public Library Expansion Funding

City money for library expansion in limbo. (Portage Daily Register, 11/1/2011)

Excerpt: The budget committee delayed a decision on funding for the project in order to look deeper into the numbers associated with the expansion, including the long-term costs and whether the current building needs improvements.

The Library Board has asked that the city to provide $400,000 in financing for the project, whichwould also be funded through grants and a public fundraising campaign. In order to contribute the city would have to borrow the money.
