Libraries are vital to a healthy community.
But is it any surprise that "Pacifica’s libraries are the oldest and smallest in the entire San Mateo County library system"? Financial mismanagement over decades shows up in so many ways!
What the slick website with fantasy illustrations doesn't mention: project costs, related debt, and liabilities, including sea level rise and coastal erosion.
The Sharp Park library property is small, just over a block from the ocean, and at only 52 feet above sea level, very vulnerable to coastal erosion.
And San Mateo County has a rapid rate of coastal erosion, from one to three feet per year.
After years of rainstorms of financial mysteries in a town so weakly leveraged that the county chose not to engage re shared services, is it reasonable to expect good fiscal management on a project of this size? Has the city already committed to these projects at the expense of the local taxpayers? Will Pacifica taxpayers be told what they are on the hook for? Or is it more "smoke and mirrors" for local taxpayers?
