UPDATE: June 7, 2023
Finkelstein Memorial Library’s budget passed after yesterday’s vote.
653 people voted in total out of 120,000 possible voters– 508 of whom voted in person, with 145 via absentee ballot. 382 voted in favor of passing the budget, and 271 voted against it.
Finkelstein Memorial Library has a library budget vote today.
The proposed budget request is for $9,107,916, which is an increase of 3.36% over last year's budget of $8,812,169.
Residents are encouraged to go out and vote as the budget vote typically has a very low voter turnout, with an increased budget passing year after year.
Voting began at 7:00 a.m. this morning and ends at 9:00 p.m. in the Fielding Room on the library's third floor.
Security staff will direct visitors on where to park due to the ongoing parking garage construction at the library.
