County Manager position discussed at workshop

Norton accounted their present troubles — one was the agonizing process of removing WIC from the premises with the help of the city of Vernon agreeing to move the WIC office to the City Hall, giving that portion back to the library to use for adult and children reading programs.

Norton advised that in the next agreement the county should include the additional space that was once the gazebo area because that was how WIC was able to take over that portion of the library to begin with.

“They put WIC in the building under the guise of using it only once a month and then they moved in and took over,” said Norton.

Another issue was with inadequate lighting in the parking lot.

“The light is broken and now with the new construction we have additional parking,” said Norton. “Our employee doesn’t feel safe leaving at night with no lighting to get to her vehicle. We’ve put in numerous complaints but to no avail.”

Goodman had advised that with inadequate lighting and multiple reports that this was a considerable liability because the librarian is a county employee.

The board agreed to look into who is responsible for the lighting to see what can be done.
