MP library doors will be closed this weekend


Menlo Park library-goers will feel some of the pain of the city's newly approved budget cuts if they have an urge to visit the library this weekend. That's because it will be closed.

The 2010-11 fiscal year budget slashes funds for the library, which, for the first time, will close all weekends before official Monday holidays.

That means the doors will be closed Saturday through Monday, July 3 through 5. It will re-open at noon Tuesday, July 6.

We can't do it without you.

Disgraceful. Just cut public sector salaries and benefits to, I don't know, maybe just 1.5 times as much as the average private sector worker?

This is disgusting.

Let us be clear. All three of the council incumbents Boyle, Cline and Robinson must be voted out of office this November. They have wasted over 1 million on the long over due and what had turned out to be a useless El Camino/Downtown vision plan and they are still spending even more, to keep the planning staff busy.

Our present City manager must go. He has increased his personal staff, (we need a new deputy City manager and a full time assistant city manager for a city the size of Menlo Park?) Where do we find these guys?

Everyone should vote for the pension initiative. We need reduced staff. We certainly need to keep our library open.

Unacceptable to all the residents of Menlo Park.
