During 1994 the County will provide the Cities,Towns and District a total sum of $100,000 to assist <br /> in providing library services to the citizens of unincorporated Skagit County. This sum will be <br /> distributed to the Cities and Towns based upon the library book collection and circulation of each <br /> municipal library, and Concrete, which shall receive $4,000 each and the District which will receive <br /> one-time payment of $10,000. <br /> 2. Based upon circulation and collection figures provided by the Cities and Towns, the $100,000 will <br /> be distributed as follows: <br /> Mount Vernon $ 41,895 <br /> Anacortes $ 27,228 <br /> Burlington $ 11,196 <br /> Sedro Woolley $ 11,682 <br /> Concrete $ 4,000 <br /> District $ 10,000 <br /> Total $106,001 <br /> 3. Each of the Cities,Towns,and District will receive its payment for library services when the following <br /> information is provided to the County: <br /> a) Documentation that non-resident library users, except in the Town of Concrete and the <br /> District, pay at least $10 per library card. <br /> r'r lt7C� LM7-riC r 14017--ok-__ , �,�� <br />
