Madison District 15 Alder, Larry Palm writes in his blog about plans for several Madison Public Libraries. He rounds out his post with the following:
When I walked doors in late 2004 through my central eastside neighborhoods, I did hear from a high percentage of households that taxes were too high. However, when I suggested that the library levy is roughly $40 per household (or about eleven cents a day), residents were amazed! For a year’s worth of services this seems like an incredible bargain. And it is.
