Goodman clarified with the board that there would first be a five-day, in-house advertisement of the position and that the board agreed that if there was someone qualifying for the position in-house, then they must be hired before advertising externally.

The board agreed to send Gothard to the city of Vernon as a representative of the board to discuss the city’s request to renew their Interlocal Agreement regarding the City of Vernon and Washington County’s library services.

“From what I’ve heard, they want to run it while we pay for it,” said Commissioner Todd Abbott.

Goodman advised them that it would be necessary for the protection of the board to find out what the city of Vernon’s intentions for the library is.

“The city needs to figure out if they want the library or not,” said Goodman.

Representing the Washington County Libraries was Linda Norton.

“We’ve got seven employees and four libraries,” said Norton. “We can’t keep it open any longer with this limited funding and staff.”
