TR Library may see changes
March 21, 2012 by WLKM
A potential change in the leadership of the Three Rivers Public Library Board could be forthcoming.
Mayor Tom Lowry and members of the Three Rivers City Commission on Tuesday discussed the option of removing Sharon Rogers as president of the library board.
Commissioners, however, agreed to wait until after the library board stages its monthly meeting Tuesday next week and see what response, if any, they receive relevant to a letter city manager Joe Bippus sent two weeks ago.
Two decisions by the library board have drawn the attention of Lowry and commissioners. The first centers on the board’s decision to evict the Weenie Kings push-cart hot dog stand from its parking lot.
The second was raised Tuesday by Commissioner Ken Baker. He said the Three Rivers Community Schools bus garage was sent a letter, informing it that buses will no longer be allowed on the library parking lot. The order means a bus that transports students with special needs to the library for a frequent visit will have to drop off and pick up the students at a location off the property, according to Baker.
