The city of Scottsdale may soon cut ties with the Palomino Library in a cost-saving measure, city officials said.

The Scottsdale city manager and city council discussed their budget at a meeting Monday night and plan to recommend ending an agreement with Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) in funding the staff and operation of Palomino Library on Desert Mountain High School's campus.

City of Scottsdale spokeswoman Kelly Corsette said the city's goal is to cut costs by $3 million in the next fiscal year.

The measure is expected to save Scottsdale $400,000 a year.

Corsette said SUSD is in support of the change and if the City Council approves, the library will revert to being the Desert Mountain High School, similar to Scottsdale schools Chaparral, Coronado and Saguaro.

Vacant positions in the other libraries are being held open for employees from Palomino if the measure is passed, Corsette said.
