I wish someone would explain to me why the Hall County Library Board decided the city of Clermont has made "no financial contribution" to the Hall County library.

If you add up rent, utilities, supplies and yes, Mr. Mixon, trash and water for over 30 years, I think you would find that the financial contribution from the city of Clermont has been a very substantial figure indeed. I'm surprised Clermont has not presented the Hall County government with a bill.

I keep hearing that the Nopone Road site is a "done deal" and our county will be the proud possessor of a facility that combines a sports complex and a library in the same building. That may be so, but I'd like to remind the present commissioners that they are elected officials and there are people waiting to run for these offices who will serve the needs of all of Hall County and spend SPLOST money the way they said they would.
