The West Hurley Public Library Board proposes an operating budget of $229,804 for the 2020 financial year. The largest single budget line increase is for the staff salary line in part because the minimum wage is rising to $12.50 per hour by 2020.Funding the proposed budget requires a budget increase of 2.73%. An owner of a $200,000 home would expect a tax increase of about $2.25. Copies of the budget are available in the library or online at Proposed Budget.
