  • Library glad to see Edelen’s efforts on special tax districts

     State Auditor Adam Edelen is shining a light on special taxing districts.  But sometimes all the rhetoric, statutes and technical jargon starts to sound like Greek to me. 

    There are several different types of special taxing districts, and your public library is one of them. As a special taxing district, we can and do collect a property tax. 100 percent of the funds collected go to the daily operation of your public library.
