There are 69,250 primary residences, 7,588 business properties, 10,244 leased business properties, and not quite 10,000 vacant land properties in Weber County. If we paid the $45,000,000 proposed library bond this year and put the money at a minimum 3 percent or greater (my retirement funds pay 8 percent) for one year, we could establish a minimum $1,350,000 or greater trust fund to keep our libraries updated in the latest information, forever. To accomplish, it would require a one-time payment of $360 for each primary residence and $720 for each business and vacant land owner in Weber County!
I am 85, retired and voting 'no' on the bond proposal! My calculations would keep our libraries updated for our children and grandchildren literally forever. Vote 'no' on the library bond. You have your mail-in ballot so vote 'no' and secure the future library needs of our posterity! People without common sense will vote 'yes.'
