The Montauk Library has issued its budget proposal in the amount of $732,121 for 2013-14. The proposed tax rate is estimated at $22.88 per $1,000 of assessed value. The increase in the tax rate is less that a dollar over last year’s. The budget vote will take place at the library on April 27 from 2 to 8 p.m.
Perry Haberman, the president of the library board, is running unopposed for another five-year term.
On Sunday, a spring tea at 2 p.m. at the library will offer a chance to meet Mr. Haberman and review the budget with the other board members, staff, and members of the Friends of the Montauk Library. A variety of teas and other goodies will be available during the informal chat.
The library’s income comes from property taxes in the amount of $712,534, unanticipated revenue from fines and fees, and grants in the amount of $19,587.
