A Siouxland community is moving forward with plans to build a new public library, provided they get the public's approval.
Plainview, Nebraska's city council met Tuesday evening and approved a plan to place a bond measure on the November General Election ballot. The measure will give voters in Plainview the opportunity to allow the city to issue up to $500,000 in bonds for the purpose of building a new library. City officials said the bonds would have no effect on residents' taxes because they would be paid for using a local option sales tax that's already in place.
Engineers have estimated that the library will cost about $1.2 million to build. The city would raise the remaining $700,000 privately.
If approved, the new library would replace the current Carnegie Library, which was dedicated in 1917.
