Councils oppose cuts

Councillors across Victoria have opposed a State Government move to cut funding to public libraries.
An urgent meeting of 90 representatives from more than 50 municipalities has agreed the state should reverse its recurrent library funding cut and negotiate a better long-term funding deal with local government.
Municipal Association of Victoria president Cr Bill McArthur said the government’s contribution was vital to the day-to-day operation of public libraries and a more sustainable funding model was urgently needed.
“The common view was that the state must reverse its funding cut and agree to conduct a full funding review to protect the viability of public libraries into the future,” he said.
