The facility is considered a level three library, which means it serves between 10,000 and 24,999 people. There are 55 level three libraries in Tennessee, and out of those, the Unicoi County Public Library is the third-lowest funded as it currently receives $52,500 combined from municipal bodies.
Copas requested $174,100, which is the same amount EMS asked for in the last budget. The Budget and Finance Committee will meet again on April 29 at 5 p.m., while the full commission will meet on April 26 at 6 p.m.
