That statement said the Civic Center lost $17,000 hosting the rodeo last year.
The bookmobile under construction for the James River Valley Library System suffered a setback, according to Joe Rector, director for the library system. Rector told the James River Valley Library System Board of Directors Monday at its regular meeting that the truck box constructed for the bookmobile had not been built to specifications by a subcontractor. Most notably, the door was in the wrong place and the box was built with a level floor without wheel wells. Without wheel wells, the box must be mounted higher for clearance.
