PETERSBURG-AK Petersburg voters will decide whether to spend a million and a half dollars for a new library Tuesday. The bond issue represents about 20 percent of the projects total cost. The State of Alaska and other backers have already committed to provide the rest of the funding. Supporters emphasize that the old library has outgrown its current location and bonding is the key, final piece of the funding puzzle for a new building. Bond measure critics say they are concerned about costs. The issue was the focus of a recent call-in show on KFSK Public Radio in Petersburg. Matt Lichtenstein reports:
