PUBLIC COMMENT - None <br /> <br />PRESENTATIONS (The Minutes will reflect the published agenda order.) <br />5.1 Nevada County Library Strategic Directions Initiative. Councilmember Eagan gave <br />a brief history of the efforts to develop a strategic vision for the library. She also reviewed <br />the vision statement and core strategies. The Nevada County Board of Supervisors had <br />accepted the report and agreed to appoint an eight member Blue Ribbon Council to look at <br />long term funding. Grass Valley, Nevada County, and Nevada County Superintendent of <br />Schools entered into an MOU to increase the hours the libraries are open. The Nevada <br />County Superintendent of Schools agreed to provide the financial support to keep the <br />Madeline Helling and Grass Valley libraries open on Saturdays during the school year which <br />would compliment their Saturday school program for kids. They also agreed to provide new <br />young adult books to the library system, provide a grant writer to pursue funding, wire <br />computer labs at both the Madeline Helling and Grass Valley libraries, and provide ten <br />computers for those labs. The City of Grass Valley agreed to reimburse the County for staff <br />up to an amount of $10,000/year which would only be until June 1998 when it was expected <br />that the Blue Ribbon Council would have developed long term funding solutions. They <br />would also be soliciting community contributions for capital improvements. The MOU <br />would not become official until Nevada County hired a librarian and adequately staffed the <br />two libraries.. She hoped that a grass roots effort would be undertaken in the Truckee area <br />which would lead to the long term sustainability of the library system. <br /> <br />5.2 Proposition 218 - The Fox Initiative.
