Board of Education Funding Issues

Because of recent developments with Board of Education funding for may of our library systems, here are the documents and correspondence from Harben & Hartley, Paul Threlkeld (GCPL attorney), Union County Commissioner, and Dr. Veatch. David Singleton did a great memo regarding this as well, but I have been unable to locate it as I recently changed computers and it may have been inadvertently misplaced. He can probably supply it if needed.

Charge Cards

We all got a flyer from ALA a few months ago, saying that First National Merchant Services was their charge card service provider, and that we could get low prices from First National as a result of their relationship.


Original Question:
There is discussion here of including some new library buildings in the extension of the current SPLOST which would be on the ballot in early February. Over the years there has been much discussion of library SPLOST projects on this list. I have several questions I hope some of you may have answers to.

Can funds for furniture and equipment for library buildings being built with SPLOST funds be included in SPLOST?
