Seaford Voters Overwhelmingly Approve Library Budget

Spending plan passes with 68 percent support.

Voters overwhelmingly approved the proposed 2012/13 budget Wednesday.

The library’s $2,049,577 spending plan was passed with 68 percent of the vote, 85 to 40. The approved budget represents an increase of $61,496 or 3.1 percent from the current spending plan. The tax levy will increase to $1.9 million, a jump of $32,898 or 1.75 percent.

"The overwhelming positive vote of the residents of Seaford is very heartwarming," said Seaford Public Library president Peter Ruffner. "The trustees and staff work extremely hard on behalf of our wonderful community to provide a wide variety of library services. Having 68 percent of the votes cast in support of the budget helps us the continue to serve Seaford year after year." 

Also on the ballot Wednesday was incumbent library trustee Patricia Coughlin, who won a new five-year term in an contested election with 106 votes.

Huge fan of libraries so I'm glad to see this. There isn't a kid in this community who wouldn't benefit by spending more time at the library and less time on Facebook.
