City of Rockland Ballot Question #2 Bond Ordinance- Library Repairs and
Rockland Library Engineering Report

Completed in December, 2015, this in-depth engineering study details significant structural and water intrusion issues in the old section of the library as well as some in the new. Retirement of old debt means no tax increases.

These issues must be addressed in order to safeguard this valuable City asset, which serves about 150,000 people each year, and to ensure that this resource is preserved as a safe and secure library now, and into the future. The Bond Question (which will be on the ballot in November) and the engineering report may be found here.
