The JJML annual budget vote and trustee election will be held on Thursday, September 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. There will be three trustee positions on the ballot, each to serve a three-year term commencing January 1, 2019 and expiring December 31, 2021. Two current board members’ terms will expire on December 31, 2018: Susan Edwards, who is eligible for re-election, and Craig Rhodes, who has served the two full consecutive three-year terms allowed under the library’s bylaws. The third position will take the place of Trustee Carol Hance who has resigned.
The proposed operating budget will result in a total increase to the taxpayers of $94,406, a decrease of approximately .35 per year for a home valued at $1,000,000, due to changes in the annual tax rate.
