Farrell New Member Of Ripon Library Board

The Ripon Common Council recently amended a city ordinance to allow an additional member on the library board. Fond du Lac County Executive Al Buechel was asking to have a County Board member appointed to the Library Board, which is allowed by state statute. To do that the Common Council had to amend the city ordinance. City Administrator Lori Rich says it is a good thing because the County does provide some funding to the library for non-residential users such as residents of the Town of Ripon. County Board Chairman Marty Farrell will represent the County Board on the Ripon Library Board. Farrell lives in Ripon and is a retired Ripon College professor.
