A quick reminder – Oakley can finance a library. The forthcoming budget will be discussed on Tuesday night, June 14, during the Oakley City Council meeting. I will be advocating moving 6.5 million dollars for the construction of a parking lot and road downtown to a library construction fund. The plan is for the parking lot to be directly across Main Street from City Hall, an ideal place, in my mind, to construct a new library.
Now would be the time to contact Oakley council members to inform them of your views concerning the reallocation of the money. The most effective manner to present your case in this matter is to be at the Council Meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m., to speak to your concerns.
