Dissolution of library likely. (Sussex Sun, 1/28/2014)
The perils of Pauline. According to the agreement reached in 1987, "Should termination of this agreement result in the closing of the library, the assets thereof shall be divided among the two municipalities in accordance with the ration of expense sharing in the average of the five year period preceding said termination."
However, village officials argue there should be no division of the library's assets because the termination of the agreement will not result in the closing of the library since the Village Board intends to continue operations of the library without town funding.
Town officials argue, however, that once the agreement is terminated, the Pauline Haas Library ceases to exist and the assets should be divided. Any library operated in the future by the village is not the same as the existing library.
