Letter to the Editor
Sunday, June 23, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

In answer to Ray Rusz's article about North Apollo's support of the Apollo library (“Leave library tax alone,” VND, June 12), are you aware that North Apollo provides more support than Apollo or any other community?

Another fact is, if the tax is repealed, the 0.75 percent will be returned to the citizens of North Apollo. I have visited the library many times and found many empty seats and plenty of parking spaces. What issues have you brought to council that we ignored? More sour grapes from a sit-at-home-and-complain citizen, I guess. I wonder how many North Apollo citizens use the library?

Why does council have to request (every year) a financial report from the library? As the biggest supporter, we should get it automatically. North Apollo will still make a donation to the library but not carry it.

Looking forward to seeing you at the next meeting.
