Council OKs surplus of old library contents

GRANDVIEW - After a public hearing on the matter this past Tuesday, the Grandview City Council approved deeming as surplus the contents in the Bleyhl Community Library.

Grandview City Administrator and Public Works Director Cus Arteaga said the building has been vacant for about a year. The shelving and other personal property in the building are no longer being used.

Arteaga said the city has no plans for using the items and requested they be surplused for lease or sale.

The only citizen to question the decision was Mary Barrett, who misunderstood the intent of the resolution.

"What about the museum...that's our history?"

She thought the city intended to surplus both the building that houses the library equipment and the museum.

It was quickly clarified for her that the museum and its contents would not be included in the surplus.

Hearing no further objections, the public hearing was closed and the Grandview City Council approved the resolution to surplus the equipment inside the former library.
