West End City Councilor David Marshal will recommend at the Council's next meeti
West End City Councilor David Marshal will recommend at the Council's next meeting that $30,000 be restored to the city budget from the contingency fund to keep the Portland Public Library's Reiche branch open for another year. He and Councilor John Anton called for the development of a long-range plan by the library board before any branches are closed. Supporters of the Reiche branch began organizing opposition after learning that the branch would close in July as part of the city's widespread budget cuts. Nearly 100 people gathered on Brackett Street on May 7th to protest the proposed closing.
