Discussion makes project stronger
It took the Library Board 4 years to develop a plan for the vacant 20,000 square feet next to the library. It also took some prodding from the Police Jury in October of 2006 and again in November of 2006 to get the library to start planning for usage of the space. Now the Library Board is pushing hard for immediate approval of their plan. Some complain that the Jury is trying to stall the plan — an unreasonable response in the eyes of fiscal responsibility.
