SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors discussed reconsidering contracts with area libraries at an informal work session on Tuesday.

Some supervisors expressed concerns about slight inconsistencies among state and county funding for the libraries. While the supervisors said no drastic changes were likely, they said it was worth looking into.

Libraries in Iowa City, Coralville, Tiffin, Solon, North Liberty, and Oxford have contracts with the county and receive county funding. Swisher plans to build a library, and it will likely seek a contract with the county as well, the supervisors said.

A vote to authorize a renegotiation letter to area libraries is scheduled for the formal meeting on March 31. The supervisors must notify libraries by April 1.
