‘No one wants the library to close'

Bullock, Strunk say they support library; communication is key


Somerset —

“I’ll either go to those (library board) meetings myself or appoint someone (to go),” Bullock said. “We will have a representative there.”
But has the fate of the facility already been cast? The petition to shut down the library taxing district is still very much active, and the group has until early next month to collect the required signatures to take the issue before fiscal court.
“We definitely don’t want to see the library close down,” Bullock said. “But, if the petition comes before fiscal court with enough signatures certified, we wouldn’t really have a choice.
“That would be devastating for the county as a whole. It would take a long time to pay that debt off,” Bullock noted.
