Hogan will hold town hall meeting June 13 about library services outsourcing

ROCKWALL – Rockwall County Judge Jerry Hogan has announced that he will hold his next town hall meeting June 13 to discuss and answer questions about his proposal to outsource County library and custodial services in order to raise $458,000 for next year’s budget.

It will begin at 7 pm on the third floor of the Historic County Courthouse, 101 E. Rusk St. 75087.

The meeting is being called in response to what Hogan wrote in an email to media and County commissioners has been “a significant number of emails from people who have had the facts about the possible outsourcing of the library misrepresented to them.”

“This is an important issue for our County and I want to give all of the people the opportunity to personally question me on the details of this proposal and why it is being made,” he wrote.

“I will answer all questions asked about the proposal to outsource the library. I hope you can pass this information on to as many people as possible.”

Many of the emails have likely come from some of the hundreds of angry and concerned citizens who during the past few days have launched a “Save the Rockwall County Library” campaign. (See the separate article on TheRockwallNews.com).

They have started an email and letter-writing campaign to Hogan and other Commissioners asking them not to outsource or library services nor lay off any library staff.
