The West Hurley Public Library Board proposes an operating budget of $196,438 for the 2014 financial year. The proposed budget increase of $4,748 is apportioned as follows: 3% for building/utilities expenses, 20% to purchase more AV materials, and 82% for staff expenditures. The library decreased its supply budget by 5%. Staff expenditures include a 2% cost of living increase and support extra hours for a high-school page to support the front desk staff. Funding the proposed budget requires a tax increase of 2.5%. An owner of a $200,000 home would expect an increase of about $1.57. Proposed Budget
There are three positions available on the board. The candidates running for reelection to the board are Jennifer O’Connor and Bruce Ladenheim.
