After a great amount of discussion, the Starke County Council approved the remodeling project proposed by the Starke County Library Board on a 4-2 vote.
The request had been stalled for several months as the council members gained information. As it stands, the Library Board will be able to solicit bids to bond for a less than $2 million remodeling project at the Henry F. Schricker Library in Knox.
Voting for the request were: David Pearman, Marvin McLaughlin, Bob Sims, and Tony Radkiewicz. Voting against were Mitchell Semans and Judy Benninghoff. Council President Mark Smith was absent.
