Funding Working Group

Role: Working Group members will work closely in researching best practices and identifying options with a rationale linked to fiscally responsible considerations of our community’s needs. Stakeholders participating in these groups will be diverse and inclusive of a variety of different perspectives. Only guiding questions will frame each group’s discussions and final recommendations.

Minimum Meeting Requirements: Each group will be invited to attend and observe the Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Task Force meetings. Staff will provide substantive background information to each working group. They will meet as working groups at least three times and will then meet across working groups a minimum of two times. These meetings will take place over the course of two months.

Guiding Questions

What is the most fiscally effective way to deliver library services of substantial benefit to all County residents?

  • Providing recommendations on this topic will require the working group to analyze different library models, review staffing levels, job descriptions and service delivery models in other library districts in comparison to MDPLS. Funding development strategies will be discussed/considered and will be included in the group’s recommendations.  Current funding level options will need to be considered and viable delivery models within current funding levels will need to be proffered; however, the group can also explore and recommend other models inclusive of a cost benefit analysis and funding details.
