In Ozaukee County, the owner of a $250,000 home in a non-libraried area pays $9 annually for the bookmobile and the owner of a $100,000 home pays about $3.60 a year, according to Birtell.
Melichar said the town was approached by Town of Cedarburg [can't get website to load] officials about the issue, noting that township pays about 40% of the county’s share of the bookmobile, which doesn’t stop there either.
Last month, the Town of Cedarburg board approved a similar resolution asking the county to amend the library system’s 2016-2020 plan to have the bookmobile funded only by those communities served by the vehicle or, failing that, to discontinue bookmobile service in the county.
Melichar said Town of Saukville officials are likely to take up a similar resolution. The Town of Saukville also contributes about 10% of the county’s share of the bookmobile, he noted.
The dollar amount in question isn’t significant, Didier conceded, but the principle is. He would feel better about funding the bookmobile if it stopped in the Town of Port, Didier added, but it doesn’t.
The utility and others in the Upper Midwest have been affected by slowed shipments of coal this year as railroads have shifted to ship more crude oil.
Last summer, Dairyland Power Cooperative in La Crosse warned that rail shipments were so behind schedule that it might not have enough coal to continue operating its Genoa power plant early next year. The rail company, BNSF, responded and stepped up shipments to Dairyland.
And it definitely felt good for us Packer fans to witness the full extent to which we had ruined Brady's day and sent the Patriots home as foul-mouthed losers. It's good to be reminded that even a guy paid $57 million and married to a supermodel isn't happy all the time.
Eleven states have passed laws to mandate drug testing since 2011, but most of those differ from Florida’s because they require testing only if drug use is suspected. After the Florida Legislature approved its law, Georgia followed suit. A similar measure was ruled unconstitutional in 2003 by a Michigan Court of Appeals.
