After serving 16 years as a member of the Cache County Council, Kathy Robison is stepping down at the end of the year. But not quite.
Cache County Executive Craig Buttars asked Robison to stay on for a while in one capacity: to study the county’s library services.
County council members have been trying to decide whether or not to continue to fund the Bookmobile, which Robison says is operated by the state of Utah.
“We don’t have any control over the situation and what happens with it,” Robison says, “and yet we are paying out almost $100,000 a year for the Bookmobile.
“We would like to have a little more say of what happens and when. So those are some of the issues we will probably bring up to the state library board.”
While on the council, Robison was commissioned by the Bear River Association of Governments to study homelessness in the Cache, Rich and Box Elder county area. More details about that study will appear in a future article.
