The Echonetdaily story that ‘Lismore abandons library takeover bid’ is a real good-news report.
Councils and councillors, like libraries, are only as good as their information.
Congratulations to those elected members of Byron, Tweed and Ballina who became well informed enough to force this issue to this point of open-mindedness. The process can now go back far enough to consider all the options and then go forward with the library’s best interests at heart.
It’s up to the Lismore councillors now to show their support and leadership for the reported staff recommendations come Tuesday night.
Alan Rich, Lennox Head
