Sheboygan library funding cut for current year to head off city deficit
The Sheboygan Press reports that the Sheboygan Common Council has requested nearly immediate departmental budget reductions, including for the Mead Public Library, in order to address a projected $2.2 million deficit in 2010. Departments are expected to present plans to cut 1 to 6 percent from their budgets for council review at a July 6 meeting, with approved cuts likely to take effect the following day. The library budget will be decreased but funded at the three-year maintenance of effort required to remain part of the Eastern Shores Library System.
