The cost is only .7 mil per household. That is less than the amount sought back in November. Apparently the entire amount raised will be dedicated exclusively to operating the Library. Letting the Library close would amount to killing the city. Property values would drop. Who would want to move into a large city with no public library? The Troy Public Library is one of the highest rated in the country, and is rated second highest in the state. Every time I visit the library, the parking lots are full or nearly full. We must not throw this valuable resource away!
