Saratoga Springs Public Library Budget Passes

By Staff Report | Business

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Voters approved Saratoga Springs Public Library Budget by nearly 200 votes: 221–22. 

Saratoga Springs School District residents approved a tax levy of $4,954,215 to operate the Saratoga Springs Public Library in 2013–14. In addition, Dorothy “DeDe” Hill of Saratoga Springs was elected to the library’s Board of Trustees, with 134 votes compared to 73 votes for Cheryl Gold.

The library serves the residents of the Saratoga Springs Enlarged City School District and funds for the library are collected when school taxes are collected. The proposed 2013-14 budget contains no increase over the amount levied in 2012. 

An estimated $550,387 will be available from sources other than 2013 property taxes.

The tax amount for public library purposes appears as a separate item on school district tax bills.

“We thank all those who came out to vote.” said Library Board President Ken Bollerud. “We’ve just completed another record-setting year for circulation and we are delighted by the public’s continued support. We look forward to another great year.”
