Turning the page: Library district emerges stronger after years of cost reduction

“Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Executive Director Dr. Ronald R. Heezen said half of the district’s employees who were laid off due to the 2008 recession have been rehired. And increased staffing isn’t the only bright spot in the district’s future: He said the libraries are now in a financial position to better meet the community’s needs. “Years of cost reduction, expenditure management and personnel cost containment have paid off for the district,”? he said in a press release. “We are now in a position to build its capacity to meet community needs, while maintaining a prudent ending fund balance.” The district’s Board of Trustees adopted the fiscal year 2015-16 budget —?? effective July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016 — at its May 21 board meeting. The budget’??s general operating fund is $59.5 million.” (via Las Vegas Review Journal)
