Library Project Update
Yesterday, staff met with Seminole County staff regarding the library presentation that will be made on Tuesday, June 27, to the Seminole County Commission. We are receiving support from County staff, but the outcome of a potential vote on an award of $10 million to SCC from the County, to be matched by the State, is undetermined. Please convey to the Commissioners before next Tuesday that you support this project. I would encourage you to join us at 1:30 p.m., on June 27, in the Seminole County Chambers.
