Mint Hill still stands where it has for two weeks: Will donate to the library if it is fair across the board

A press release by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, as well as other media sources, have said that boards from Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews and Mint Hill met yesterday to officially vote on how much they will give the library to keep doors open. However, Mint Hill Board of Commissioners did not meet yesterday. They voted at the previous board meeting almost two weeks ago to give the library $175,000, as long as it is equitable to what the other towns are giving. As of now, the equitability is in question. Cornelius, the only other town that was willing to give the full $175,000 in cash, voted yesterday that the donation come with several conditions:

The Cornelius board approval came with a series of conditions. Chief among those is a need to work out an “asset transfer agreement” with the county equivalent to $175,000. The agreement could include a lien, an asset swap, or a promissory note, the board said.

Other conditions, according to draft minutes of Monday’s meeting, included:

Commitment of the Library Board of Trustees to the Contingency Plan adopted by the Mecklenburg County Commission;
That funds be released on the staggered schedule outlined in the Contingency Plan adopted by Mecklenburg County and only upon satisfactory completion of the conditions set forth in that document;
Emergency support participation, either financial or in-kind, by the City of Charlotte and three other towns (in addition to Cornelius);
The town attorney will review and amend the interlocal agreement as necessary;
That a town representative be appointed to the Steering Committee.

Expect Mint Hill to follow suit and offer conditions to giving the library $175,000. After the break: Read the press release sent by the library, as well as the Memorandum of Understanding that four of the five towns approved yesterday. […]
