Clarification on library proposition

To the Adirondack Journal:

The Warrensburg Central School District legal notice published earlier in April stated that the proposed levy for Richards Library would be Proposition #3 on the ballot at the May 15th election at the high school.

However, the school newsletter notes that the proposed levy has been changed to Proposition #2.

There are only two propositions on the ballot, so this change should not cause any confusion, but we want to make sure voters are aware of the change.

Richards Library is not affiliated with the school in any way, and this is the first time a proposition unrelated to the school has ever appeared on the school ballot, as provided by state education law, under which all libraries are chartered.

The proposal will fund the library's operating budget and spread the cost equitably over the library's entire service area, not just the Town of Warrensburg. This will enable the library to use its diminishing general fund balance to finish the new addition without further expense to the public.
