Deal reached for library funding


ZUMBROTA -- The Goodhue County Board agreed to a plan Thursday for contributing funds to libraries in the county.

The county will levy and collect funds on land that currently isn't taxed for library services, according to the agreement. It will provide $468,000 to the libraries in 2014, and that number will be the base for the funding in future years of the five-year agreement, Goodhue County Attorney Steve Betcher said.
