Library Trustee, Budget Vote on April 18
The Manhasset Public Library annual vote and election will be held in the community room of the library between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18. Incumbent Trustee Senetta Koch is running unopposed for re-election. The board has proposed an operating budget of $2,547,427, an increase of 3.4 percent, which is just equal to the annual Consumer Price Index (cost of living) increase for the year 2000. If approved by the voters, the taxes for library service will go from $2.34 to $2.42 per hundred dollars of assessed valuation. On a house assessed at $10,000, the library tax for the family for a year will be $242.
