This measure sought to increase the current county property tax by a rate of 3.5 mills for an ongoing amount of time in order to pay for maintenance and operational costs of the libraries in the county. Though library officials noted that they would only need around 1 mill, so they would not collect the full asked for levy. They wanted the higher amount in case there was a future need for more money so they would not have to go back to voters.[2]
