The Delta County Library District is asking for help to maintain current programs and add new technology, resources and materials. Delta County Public Library Ballot Issue 7A asks voters to approve a 2.7 mill levy increase on the November 5th ballot. Two library representatives and a longtime library patron speak with KVNF News to talk about the issue.

KVNF News examines three of the ballot measures that have local impact in Delta County. Ballot questions 7E and 7F would create a special taxation district for the North Fork Ambulance Association. Ballot issue 6C asks voters to maintain mill levy funding for the North Fork Pool Park  and Recreation District. And Amendment X would change the definition of industrial hemp.

Paonia’s five and a quarter miles of bumpy, deteriorating sidewalks are a problem. Earlier this year the Town attempted to get homeowners to pay for their own sidewalk repair -- but met with resistance from residents who said they could not afford it, even if the Town contributes half the cost of concrete up to $500.

Now ballot question 2A calls for a three dollar per month addition to utility bills for ten years to cover the cost of sidewalk maintenance.
