Position of the Macon County Board of Commissioners regarding the Fontana Regional Library Agreement

The FRL agreement entered into in 2013 requires that the three participating counties, Jackson, Macon and Swain revist the structure of the FRL every 10 years. In compliance with that aggrement, the three managers met on Thursday, April 6, and discussed what was working and what needed improvement. It was unanimously agreed that the Regional Agreement is beneficial to all three counties and their citizens, but improvement is needed in the areas of parental empowerment and governance of the FRL system.

As a result, the counties are looking into:

  • Provisions which will give parents greater ability to set restrictions over what materials their minor children may check out while still remaining in compliance with the law.

  • The structure and authority of the respective local county library boards and the Regional board.
Because the structure of each of the libraries affected is different, this will take a little time to enable each county to evaluate the structure that is has in place. The hope is that we will be able to present these proposed
revisions to the local government to the three Commissioner Boards by mid to late August.
