Milner library board seeks transfer of ownership to city

The Milner library board has written mayor Andy Marlowe expressing its desire to transfer ownership of the library facilities to the city. ’Ownership of the facility was originally vested with a Library Board of Trustees to ensure the new facility would be operated and maintained as a library for at least 20 years as required in its funding agreement with the State of Georgia. It is the city’s library and was partially funded with taxpayer dollars,’ the letter reads. It was signed by board members George Weldon, Amy Morgan, Beth Goff, Bill Christopher and Cheryl Idol. Stipulations proposed in the letter seem require the city and its taxpayers to fund maintenance and operation of the library while the library board controls those operations. The library board stipulated the city would have to operate the facility as a library for the 20-year period; the library board would continue to manage the operation of the library; and the library must remain a member of the Flint River Regional Library System. The city council discussed the matter extensively at its regular meeting Monday night. See the 12.22.20 print edition of The Herald Gazette for details.
