LIBRARY BOARD OF TRUSTEES | Print |

Board Established by: State

Description:
On May 17, 2004, Senate Bill 231 was passed by the State Legislature and signed by the Governor, and this Bill changed the makeup of the Library System Board of Trustees. It dissolved the 17 member Library Board and created an eleven (11) member Library Board.

The Library Board of Trustees was established by a Resolution of the Board of Commissioners on July 1, 1984, Item #55, and at the Regular Meeting of June 1, 1988. Georgia House Bill #1780 established procedures for reappointments and expanded the Board from fourteen (14) positions to sixteen (16) positions. Georgia House Bill #799 expanded the Board from sixteen (16) positions to seventeen (17) positions. This Board oversees matters related to the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library. At the January 22, 1997 Board of Commissioners Meeting (Item #97-0139), the Board approved a $50 per diem for Library Board of Trustees members per attendance at Regular meetings only. On January 1, 1998, House Bill #606 established that one of the five (5) Board of Commissioners appointees shall be a resident of unincorporated north Fulton County (Item #96-1140).
