Garden Valley Library Levy Vote Fails

Garden Valley taxpayers voted thumbs down, 192-103, on the $250,000 supplemental levy election, Tuesday, August 3.

Due to fluctuations in the cost of building materials and labor, the Board of Trustees opted to go for the levy, for funds needed to finish the interior of the new library, which is under construction on Old Crouch Road.

Board Chairman Rich Wilson responded after the vote: "We will be looking harder at private donors and scaling back what we can, so we can get the doors open"

The board will also be looking at grant applications.
