Castlegar Library receives funding from city

Castlegar city council vote to enter into an agreement with the Castlegar and District Public Library for three years.

At Castlegar City Council meeting on June 18, council voted to enter into an agreement with the Castlegar and District Public Library for three years.

“We approved the library grant funding agreement,” said councillor Gord Turner. “We have a contract that they sign and we’ve authorized this for the next three years. We have agreed on a 2 per cent increase over the next three years. That will allow them to have stability with their planning. They can move ahead with all their planning for the next three years as they get their other library funding items.”

The library will receive $272,300 in 2012, $277,800 in 2013, and $283,400 in 2014. As part of the agreement, the library association must keep the city informed of it’s activities and financial status.

 

The city of Castlegar and the RDCK are the two main funding sources for the Castlegar and District Library.
