Lemon: Library opinion question could be interesting

Not only will Cache County residents be voting for local, state and national candidates this election year they will also be voting for a longtime controversial issue, a countywide library. Cache County Executive Lynn Lemon says Logan reduced its price for a library card from $163 to $100 under an 18-month agreement and now Cache County will do what it agreed to: put the issue on the November ballot. Lemon says Logan and North Logan both have a dedicated library tax so they would not be paying more but other communities would.”It will be interesting to see as far as how to propose that opinion question on the ballot because for some it won’t make a difference as far as what it will cost,” Lemon says. “But for the vast majority of those who don’t have a dedicated tax…the tax will be somewhere between $75 to $100 per household.” Lemon says the countywide library issue is actually only a non-binding issue. He says only 58 households from outside Logan have purchased a Logan library card since the price was lowered.
