Glad to see the Council did the right thing. According to the Voice back in Jan 2011, Mountain View was paying $400K per year more for employees than Sunnyvale was (and $900K more than private operators nearby).

When we don't even support our library at the average of other libraries, there is no way we should be paying far higher than the average for the golf course.
