Finally, took Wallace Bajjali getting out of the way for the library to get going, cool.

We don't need another damn library!!!!

Anonymous said...

You're right. We need a new one!

Anonymous said...

3:18, if you're thinking of a library as just a place to check out books, you're missing out on what libraries can be and do for communities these days.

Anonymous said...

If we're really going to grow and provide for everyone, we could use 2 library branches.

Anonymous said...

Could the city operate two? Seems the one we have is run down.

Anonymous said...

Please elaborate.

Anonymous said...

FYI: MSSU Spiva Library

Anyone may use library, including reference for free.

Library Card (one year)
K-12 students $10
MSSU students free
Citizens $15
Not necessarily cheap to check out, but still a great resource.

Anonymous said...

If the one we have is "run down" then it needs to be repaired. It probably isn't cost effective to make it meet all the new ADA requirements (they do change constantly) but it's still a library in a location that is convenient for some.
A second branch (which many towns have) will give access to others. Many materials can be shared and each branch can facilitate different things.
I really have no idea about the cost for 2. If we could make that happen, we should.
Southern's library is an unknown resource for many but there is cost where the public library is free.

Anonymous said...

If they are going to open a second library, which we don't need, then they need to be all inclusive to Joplin residents! Those that live across county lines, yet have a Joplin postal address, are charged an outrageous fee to use the library. Our children go to Joplin schools, but can't check out library books for free! We literally live across the street from the city limits, therefore we don't qualify for a free library card... Ridiculous!!

Read the 1/30 "editorial" in the Joplin Globe by Ryan Stanley and ask yourself why he wrote it.

Could it be he's circling the wagons in response to a citizen's request to the Joplin City Clerk this week for a recall election petition? A request was made.Really. And the Clerk refused to provide a recall petition form.
You decide.
Time to recall the council members who backed WB and spend our money without any thought.

Anonymous said...

How is the Super TIF impacting the library tax? Has anyone seen any information comparing the operating costs of the current library with the proposed new building? Do they have enough revenue to cover costs?

Anonymous said...

To 7:28--The Joplin library is run on tax money; if you don't live inside the city limits, you are asked for a user fee since you haven't paid any tax to support the library. Quitcherbitchin' and pay your share if you want to use it.

Anonymous said...

Guys, there's no plan for two libraries. The new one is meant to be a replacement. The current library will be left vacant. There is no plan for it.

Anonymous said...

Why wouldn't the clerk provide the recall form?

Anonymous said...

How do we stop the library project? A petition? How many signatures would be required?

Anonymous said...

Oh, goody. Another empty building.
crooks and idiots

Anonymous said...

Why would you stop it. You like the current crappy one? You are freakin' crazy.

Anonymous said...

So, we send millions of our tax dollars to the government and they sent some of them back to us for a new library to replace a crappy one and we are saying we don't want our own federal money back? Clueless people deserve what they have.

There is no requirement that the funds be spent on a new library. The money could be used to repair roads or a number of other basic infrastructure projects (sewer, water, etc). A city cannot grow if the underlying infrastructure is not strong. When large companies are looking for a place to build a factory or expand their existing business, they first look to see if the city is capable of supporting the project. Think about it like this - a woman can put on a beautiful, expensive dress, but if she's not wearing a good bra and some Spanx (infrastructure), no one will be commenting on the gorgeous dress because everyone is too distracted by the fact that nothing is being supported underneath. Does a new library in a residential area and a giant, empty building downtown attract big business? No. But good roads, solid infrastructure, good schools, and low tax rates do. What we currently have and the decisions being made now result in the opposite of big business attraction.

Anonymous said...

Um, actually the grant IS for a new.library, which I support for obvious reasons. Sewers and storm drains are great but we also need high-quality public facilities like a new library to replace the crummy one that we have. Is kind of bizarre this debate is even real.

Anonymous said...

But, but, football....

The library will cost Joplin a fortune. Sure their is some grant money, which is our federal taxes, for the project but the city is planning on using several million from the TIF that we will have to repay. Also David Wallace signed a long term lease on the cities behalf for the land which is costing the city about 13 grand a month.

Anonymous said...

@1:09 Try again. There is grant money for a library, but it does not require a new facility to be built in a residential area. Further, the city is putting up $5 million for the library which it is getting from the TIF, thereby diverting 5 million more dollars that could be used to stabilize infrastructure.

Anonymous said...

I heard it is 4.5 million tif and the rest is property the city already owned there. Wallace is not part of library, EDA didnt allow it.

Anonymous said...

The infrastructure remarks sound like a city engineer. Im for a new library and infrastructure. If the city cant accomplish this with 180 million wipe them all out.

Anonymous said...

1230 i have spent a fair amount of time at the current library and I don't think its crappy. Libraries are kind of like movie rental places and are growing obsolete. People read on their computers or Kindles. So the question of do we need a new city library if it's going to cost 5 million of city money and another 15-20 of federal. I say let the public vote majority wins. I'm not stuck in the past but the city is not in a financial position to move forward with the library.

Anonymous said...

I have spent a lot of time with my child at library and it stinks. You people are lost. Geez.

Anonymous said...

It seems we arent out anything as its all tif on city side and I dont know that much but do the homework.

Anonymous said...

646 when you say we aren't out that much just the TIF I disagree. The TIF is an $18 million dollar loan that the city has taken out and has to repay. They are using about a third of the TIF money on the library. That's a lot of money to me. Just drove by the library 3 cars in the lot.

Anonymous said...

A new library will just make more room for the pervs and weirdos to hide out.

Anonymous said...

Anonymous @8:33:

After the "costs" of the bond sale, the pool of TIF money to be spend as reported by the Globe is $13.5 million. So the library is slated for exactly 1/3 of that.

How it is supposed to increase the value of the land surrounding it by that much, the "I" for increment in TIF, is something I can't fathom.
