Monson not discouraged by library vote

Logan Municipal Council Chairman Jay Monson had hoped that a majority of Cache County citizens would vote in favor of a countywide library system in a non-binding ballot question on Tuesday.But Monson says the vote, which was 47.7 percent in favor and 52.2 percent against, was actually pretty close so he felt pretty good about the results.He says several communities voted for it, including Logan, River Heights, North Logan, and Mendon. Monson says he talked to Utah Library Board member Steven Matthews who said what happens next is up to the Cache County Council.”He said, ‘Well they could proceed to organize a county library system and have it composed of those cities and towns who voted in favor of it’,” Monson recounts. “And he said, ‘If there are other cities and towns that were close they could be contacted and see if they wanted to come in to it and then it could be established.'”A discussion of the library vote is on the agenda for the next meeting of the County Council Tuesday, November 9.
