Farmingdale Library Sets Tax Levy

Vote will take place on April 3.

The board has approved a 2012-2013 buget with a tax levy of 1.98 percent, less than the 2 percent recommended by the new tax cap law.

Residents will vote on the budget on April 3 from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the library.

According to Library Director Debbie Podolski's February report to the board, anticipated health insurance increases and other cost increases forced the library to make some cuts for next year.

Some standing resource orders were cancelled if the content was available through online database subscriptions and the library will be using emails rather than print newsletters/mailings to inform residents about announcements.

The public will have the opportunity to offer their input on the budget at the next board meeting on March 20 at 7 p.m.

Important Dates:

March 5 - Deadline to file petitions for library trustee in the Library Director's office.

March 20 - Absentee ballots will be available at the Library Director's office.

March 20 - Board Meeting and Budget Hearing in the Conference Room at 7 p.m.

March 20 - Voter Registration at the Library 4 p.m. - 8 p.m.
