Fernandina Beach library bid over budget
FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. -- The Fernandina Beach city commission just approved a bid to build a new library but doesn't know how to pay for it.
The lowest bid was $1.4 million, which is$200,000 over the projected budget. Also, the county is now back-tracking on its promise to pay $600,000.
Nassau County leaders believe the city didn't take good enough care of the old library and say they will only help pay for furniture, fixtures and equipment.
Negotiations between the city and county could change that.
