Commissioner Valentine Disappointed By Comments Critical Of Library Funding

May 9th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Allegany County Commissioner Bill Valentine says he is disappointed to read letters to the editor and reader commentaries in recent weeks critical of the commissioners for what they say is inadequate funding for the county library system.  Valentine notes that the county did provide a slight funding increase in this year’s proposed budget, not to mention a number of capital improvements planned in the coming years. He said the real target of their frustration should be the state- which has been providing fewer dollars. He said it was disheartening when he testified before state committee’s this past session of the general assembly- to see no other library advocates from the county adding their voice to the fight
