Committee votes down library funding

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

District 4 Commissioner Ewell Lyle says the finance committee met today to discuss funding to reopen the Westtown library.  They voted 2-1 against funding that branch.

Lyle made the first motion against the funding.  Lyle and Hudgins voted against the funding and Hayes voted for it. 

Commissioner Lyle says this will go before the full commission Monday morning. 

The library board was asking for $150,000 in additional funding to reopen Westtown. 

Westtown was chosen because the board says it will cost the least to reopen, less staffing needed and the smallest. 

The full commission must vote next week.
