The Board also makes recommendations regarding the County's budget for the countywide library system; the proportionate shares of all County funds to be allocated to the participating libraries; and the method of distribution of those funds.

The members of the Lake County Library Advisory Board shall be appointed by the Board of County Commissioners.

Member types:
