Concern About Cost For New Library

Dear Editor,

I'm not at all surprised but still disturbed at the already increased cost of the new library.

There's no doubt that Meaford library needs a new home and initially it seemed that the Sykes Street OPP option was reasonable at $3-4 million, even with the certainty that costs always exceed original predictions.

Now, with a change of location, the projected cost is getting scary indeed.
