City Council Borrowing Money to Build Library

One year after Folsom residents voted not to have a special tax just for a city library, Folsom City Council decided to borrow the money needed and dig in to the city’s general fund to pay for it. After learning that chances of getting a state grant were slim with the statewide budget crisis, residents will still pay for it one way or another. Kerri Howell was the sole member of city council who opposed this decision. More is in the Bee.
