Texas: “Llano County Approves Allocating $150,000 to Fight Library Lawsuit”
A lawsuit filed against Llano County and its library system once again packed the Commissioners Court on Monday, June 13. Commissioners voted to move $150,000 from two different line items in the county’s budget to provide legal representation for all of the people named as defendants in the U.S. District Court lawsuit Little et al v. Llano County et al.
Commissioners approved transferring $100,000 from the county’s miscellaneous contingency fund and $50,000 from professional services for the litigation.
The vote came after county commissioners went through every other item on the 25-item agenda and following a hour-long executive session. The Commissioners Court also heard comments from six people attending the meeting, four voicing support for allocating the funds and two against.
