  • NEWS: Library Bond Vote Tuesday, October 6

    On Tuesday, October 6, Port residents will have the opportunity to vote for or against a $5.9 million-plus bond that would finance the expansion and renovation of the existing 28-year-old Port Washington Public Library on Main Street. If approved, according to information on a flier published by the library, the average Port Washington household, with a home assessed at $10,000, would have to pay approximately $45 more a year in taxes for the next 20 years. The vote - be it passage or defeat of the bond - will only affect plans for the existing library building. It will not affect separate plans to construct a parking lot next door, nor will it affect a movement to preserve the former Baker Funeral Home/Mackey-Baker house. FULL STORY
