Converse County Penny Tax Would Expand Two Libraries

ConverseCountylibrary.org

Voters in Converse County will be asked a similar question on November 6th as voters in Natrona County. “Do they support an additional penny tax to expand library resources?” In Converse County the proposal involves expansion of both the Glenrock and Douglas Libraries.

Trish Popovitch is a member of the Political Action Committee promoting the penny tax.  She says in Converse County they hope to raise $22 million over five years for the two projects.

“If we don’t get that much in the time limit we will make due with what we have. The project costs include, not only the new buildings, but the maintenance and equipment funds for the buildings and the paying back of the bond.”

She says the Library board chose to go with a bond so construction can start immediately.

Popovitch says there are over 40 items not included in the tax including groceries, prescriptions and animal feed. “We tried our best to make sure this was not a burden on the tax payers. And to be very clear, this is not a property tax.”

The Converse County library design proposals call for no demolition, but extension and renovation of existing buildings.
