iBox, to me it's a matter of waste and fiscal responsibility. It is wasteful and incredibly fiscally irresponsible to close the district and still pay the debt and have nothing to show for it - THAT is what I feel Reagan would object to.

If the situation needs to be fixed - and I'll be the first to admit that the public meeting is where I began my first hand knowledge - then fix it, don't close the library, pay the debt and have nothing to show for it except a bill marked "paid". Would you move out of your house and still pay it off for somebody else to live in? I wouldn't think so.

Personally I feel like the petitioners are stealing $9,000,000 from the taxpayers of Pulaski County - if we have to pay the money we deserve to have library buildings and services to show for it.

There has to be a fiscally responsible middle ground here, but closing the library isn't it.

So, what is the "end-game" for the Library Board down the road? Can we be confident that there is an actual intent to retire all the accumulated debit ($9 million+), at which time the Library Board will be dissolved so that a new taxing district can be created?
If you believe that, I've got a bridge you might be interested in.

Better hope the State Legislature creates new law to reign in the taxing power of such unelected bodies.
