Voters to decide fate of Pueblo Library Mill Levy

Posted at 10:27 PM, Jul 25, 2019

PUEBLO — In November voters in Pueblo County will have the chance to say yay or nay to a mill levy to fund their libraries.

Thursday night the Board of Trustees for the Library Distract unanimously approved putting the option on this year's ballot.

"It generates approximately one million dollars a year and that all goes to public library services, new books, employment of all of our staff, but mainly our programs and services that the public enjoys every day," said Jon Walker, executive director of the Pueblo City-County Library District.

A mill levy has been in place for the last 20 years and it's scheduled to expire at the end of this year.
