Huntington Library Vote Today – April 16
Huntington Public Library district will be voting Tuesday, April 16 on the budget and the uncontested re-election of a trustee.
Library director Michael Bogin stated the $8.6-million budget proposal that reflects increased costs in the state Employee Retirement System and state health insurance plan, and retroactive salary increases that come after three years of employee union negotiations.
Major provisions from the negotiations are cutbacks on library service hours, offset by increased expenditures for download of electronic materials and program activities at both branches.
The increase per household to the average homeowner in the district is between $19.20 ($4,000 assessment) and $38.40 ($8,000 assessment).
Voting runs from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. at the library on Main Street.
