FYE18 OPERATING BUDGET NOTE
As we move back to our expanded Moffat Library this modest annual proposed operating increase will help us to cover the added expense of the minimum wage increase + a minimum of additional staff so all areas of the larger building are monitored during library hours and to assist with an anticipated increase in traffic.
In addition, bringing our Library into the 21st century technologically includes the addition of 17 new workstations and software and peripherals – in essence, doubling the amount of terminals that we currently have, the bulk of which will be for public use.
The proposed operating budget increase averages about $5.60 per year per household. For the cost of a couple of cups of coffee, we can continue to provide you and your family with the myriad programs and services that you have come to depend on all throughout the year.
