Forty-year-old cabinets have been a point of contention for the LaFollette City Council this month.
As the new library building was being renovated, former project manager Paul Begley tore the cabinets out. They had been part of the building since it was built in the 1970s, and weren’t in good shape, Begley said.
Council member Hansford Hatmaker also felt the cabinets were in poor condition, and told Begley to dispose of them.
“If somebody loaded them up, I wouldn’t take them,” Hatmaker said.
