The community approved the 2021-2022 budget and re-elected Kim Sutter to the Board of Trustees.
The budget of $243,079 is a 4.75% increase ($11,005). The tax levy is a 4.39% increase ($10,000). For most households, the increase should be less than $10 a year. Major new expenses were cleaning ($5,000), automation contracts allowing us to access data required by state law regarding public use of school library materials, as this information is no longer provided to us by the school ($5,000), and anticipated legal fees as we negotiate a new agreement with the school district for shared use of the facility ($10,000). These increases were primarily offset by a plan to increase donations ($5,000) and reduce staffing expenses ($5,000). The library does not receive state or federal aid.
