Geelong Councils Library Funding cuts – Council backs down

Summarizing from Matt Hewsons excellent article from The Independent – 30 June 2023

The 2023 -24 CoGG budget has been passed, fully restoring funding for lifesavers, while leaving libraries with a $406,000 shortfall.

The library funding issues have rallied more ratepayers to voice there concerns than any other issue last year.

I am amazed that CoGG is happy to spend lots of money to build new libraries and forgets to fund running costs.
