Budget Vote May 7 at Canastota Public Library

The Board of Trustees of the Canastota Public Library announces that it will hold a budget vote for fiscal year 2013-2014 on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 from Noon to 9PM at the Library in the Lawson Community Room located in the lower level.

The budget amount is $328,257. This is a 5.5 % increase over our previous budget amount of $311,036 which has been in place since our last election in 2006. The increase is primarily due to the large increase in the library's contribution to the New York State Employee Retirement System (it increased from $13,000 last year to $27,000 this year) in which we are required to participate as a Civil Service entity.

Voter registration will be held on Monday, April 15, 2013 from 9am to 8:30pm at the Main Desk of the Library. Any qualified voter who has not registered in the Canastota School District for the General Election held in November 2012 must present himself personally to the main desk of the Canastota Public Library for registration during the hours the library is open as follows: Monday 9am to 8:30pm. No person shall be entitled to vote whose name does not appear on the registration of the election district in which he claims to be entitled to vote.

The Canastota Public Library is located at 102 W. Center Street in the village of Canastota, New York.
