Library Board to Recommend Millage to LPPJ

There’s but a single agenda item listed for a Thursday special called meeting of the Lincoln Parish Library Board of Control: “Discuss and take action on millage recommendation to Police Jury.”

The meeting will be at 5:00 PM, Library Events Center, 910 North Trenton Street.

    The LPPJ wouldn’t know a good millage if it bit them in the a**. I have no faith in them or their administrator whatsoever. Is there a Tech professor or local businessman who is reading this blog that’s done any research on library millages? Has the library board or LPPJ done any research on millages? Is Pullin really as dumb as he sounds in the youtube videos?

    How about ‘downsizing’ the Library? Physically and fiscally. The LPPJ needs a new building, move in where the Library is and the Library can move either to a new location perhaps a building swap for the old Temple building on Alabama or the ‘event’s center.

    Open up Louisiana Tech’s library to the public, which is owned by the tax paying citizens of Louisiana.

      Is it? Wasn’t aware Tech library owners by the citizens. Do they pay tuition?

        I actually kinda get that argument. Taxpayers obviously do contribute to the funding of Tech. They need to be able to benefit fully? Feelin’ it out…

      Any person can go in the Tech Library and research, view microfilm, read magazines and newspapers, view the millions of federal documents on file, etc. I did it often as a teenager writing papers. As far as I know, the only restriction to those outside Tech is actually checking out books.

    To 140pm. Quite a few that has graduated paid tuition. Does the Chinese own La Tech or do the tax paying citizens of Louisiana and the USA own La Tech. You sound like a Biden fan.

      First of all, let’s clean this up.

      “To 1:40 P.M. Quite a few people that have graduated from Louisiana Tech have paid tuition to Louisiana Tech. One of the benefits they get from tuition is the ability to use the library. Do the Chinese own Louisiana Tech or do the tax-paying citizens of Louisiana and the United States own Louisiana Tech? You sound like a Biden fan.”

      Second of all, what does that even mean?

      The Chinese government is asking the taxpayers here in itty-bitty Ruston, Louisiana, to demand their right to use services for which they actually pay? Just to cause problems for the Republicans?
      Seriously, dude. What does your statement even mean?

      Trust me bae. Ruston and Louisiana Tech are not that important. Get off your red-neck high horse and think for yourself.

    If you pay Federal Income Taxes or taxes in Louisiana you own not only LA Tech but a part of any state run University in the U.S. Where do you think public education gets money? Tuition is only a small part. just because you own government property gives you a right to use it. Universities first commitment is to it’s students, faculty, and staff, not to non-students. if the general public were allows to use it’s facilities there would be more chaos than at the LPPJ, their meeting, ad the LBOG meetings.

    Tax paying citizens pay for every penney government spends and all of the government money non-taxpaying citizens receive from the state or feds.

    Please don’t ask a Tech Professor about library millages. i guarantee you they could not tell you about millages. Millages have nothing to do with it except for the rate of tax businesses and real property owners are going to pay each year to support the huge egos of a few. Sound fiscal policies, good competent management, realistic budgets, management that is competent to be able to predict the needs of the citizens of Lincoln Parish is what it takes to run a library. This willl never happen because very few qualified people will run for public office now and it will only get worst.

    With all of this said, cut the size and budgets of government, the library is part of government. Have any of you talked with or seen your PJ member lately? To be public servants, where are they to be found? Meetings and trips?

      *worse

      It IS only going to get worse.

      But it’s not just about the people who run for office/hold office. Think about it.

      Think about the people who hold a position in government that are not elected. Do you trust them?

      I don’t.

    Chaos, it appears,has become part of the part of the American culture and maybe colleges should experience some of the Chaos that they, along with their leftwing idelogies helped create.

      Tech does NOT allow use of library to the public.

        They don’t require a showing of an ID when you walk in. So you can use the services while you are there. But you can’t check out. You can copy stuff.

    So there is confusion about the use of La Tech library by the non-student public: What is the true policy?
