Lanesboro City Council hears library report


Fri, Nov 9th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Government

Tara Johnson and David Hennesey spoke to the Lanesboro City Council at their regular meeting on November 5 and gave their quarterly report about the public library.

Johnson said this summer there were 21 programs at the library, including story time, performers, and walk-abouts. There were 623 kids that attended those programs, and 50 that participated in reading programs.

Johnson thanked the city for the new sign outside the community center directing people to the library, as it has been very helpful. Krista Flaig, an art teacher at Lanesboro Schools, spoke about the mural that she would be having some art students paint this winter in the library. She described it as a “splash of color” with words and pictures.

Hennesey spoke and said he was very pleased with the direction the library is going this year.

“As of September 30, our circulation was 21,611, which is better than the entire circulation of 2010, and 2011,” said Hennesey.

Hennesey also talked about the 380 volunteer hours that have been put in over the year, and more hours for reading and other things.

Council member Ceil Allen thanked them for all of their hard work at the library, and Hennessey thanked the city for all of their support.

Lodging Tax Ordinance

City Attorney Tom Manion spoke to the council about the current lodging tax ordinance, and how it may need revamping. They have had the lodging tax ordinance in place for a long time, but there has been no real clear way to enforce it.

Manion said there’s an integrity component, and they want to be reassured they are doing their job enforcing this. He said they could check with other cities that have a similar ordinance and see how they manage it.

The council authorized City Administrator Bobbie Vickerman and Manion to look over the ordinance for accuracy and compliance.

Lanesboro Museum

Sandy Webb from the Lanesboro Museum was at the meeting to talk about how the museum has been doing, and to thank the city for their support. She said she has received a lot of compliments about the museum and what they have displayed there, and that it shows a real sense of community.
