Buttars not ready to discuss proposed library move

Members of the Cache County Council will wait until their last meeting in September to discuss a proposal made by the Logan Downtown Alliance. In a letter from the Alliance this week it was proposed that a planned new Logan City Library be built on county-owned land at the corner of 100 North and 100 West.

The letter indicated that it would be better economically than having the library where it is now located: on Main Street between 200 and 300 North.

At Tuesday’s meeting, Cache County Executive Craig Buttars told the county council he does not plan to respond to the request until it has been discussed by council members.

Buttars said, however, he has reservations because of the county’s expected future growth.

“The ability to function the way that we need to function as a county government might not tie in, and probably would not tie in with a library being constructed on that (property).”

The council decided to discuss the issue as an item on the agenda for the council’s last meeting in September.

In the letter, members of the Downtown Alliance suggested the county would donate the land for the library but Logan City would charge county residents a substantially-reduced fee for the library’s use.
