It would have been a cold winter in Avalon if it weren’t for an approval by the Uintah County Commission on Monday. Commissioners approved a budget transfer of library funds to support a crucial repair to the rural internet center in Avalon. The furnace of the center went out, explains Uintah County Clerk/Auditor Mike Wilkins. The community center and attached broadband internet site in Avalon is a very important resource in that community. The Uintah County Library partners with the community center, bringing books and computers to keep the community members in that area connected. The location is manned by volunteers and the entire operation runs smoothly with the exception of the furnace. We needed to get a new one for them, explains Wilkins, and we had the money to swap from a library fund to the rural internet center fund in the amount of around $2,100 dollars.
