BHCo Supervisors Up County Library Contribution by $4,000

Black Hawk County’s governing Board of Supervisors has agreed to contribute $4,000 more next fiscal year than this year, to the seven city libraries within the county’s borders.

The library directors in Waterloo, Evansdale, Cedar Falls, Hudson, Dunkerton, Janesville and La Porte City asked for $160,000 in county funds for the year beginning July 1st, but the supervisors voted to approve $150,000.

It was the fifth time in seven years the county increased the amount, but it’s still less than the state average.
