(MOU) from the county for the library plans, Lempe replied, "No." Then Goodwin and board member Caroline Zucker pointed out that the county failed to follow through on similar proposed plans in the past involving a new North Port school. "We spent quite a bit of money and it didn't come to fruition ... I don't want to see that hap- pen again," Goodwin said. "We need to work diligently with [the County Commission]." "I absolutely agree," Lempe told her. However, he said, he does not see the lack of an MOU at this point as a sign the county's interest in the project has waned. He feels county staff is waiting for the School Board to give it some feel for the scope of the SCTI plans and cost estimates. In response to an inquiry from The Sarasota News Leader, county spokeswoman Jamie Carson said on June 17 that Sarabeth Kalajian, the county's director of libraries and historical resources, already is preparing a presenta- tion on the library for an upcoming County Commission budget workshop. SCTI PROGRAMS Bowden told the board the North Port SCTI will offer a range of programs, from New Sarasota County School Board member Bridget Ziegler (right) and board member Caroline Zucker prepare for the start of the June 17 workshop.
