East Greenbush Library Budget Passes

Sep 16, 2020

Voters in East Greenbush approved the public library budget and elected two trustees Tuesday.

By a 6 to 1 margin, voters in East Greenbush passed a 2021 public library budget of $2.067 million, a 3.2 percent decrease from the current budget.

Jill Dugas Hughes is director of the East Greenbush Community Library. “It's a total income loss of $68,967. Which is essentially going to result in a flat library tax for the community. So the budget increase to the taxpayers is $1000."

Camille Engel and Lewis Dubuque won trustee positions with five-year terms from a field of four candidates.

Trustees are community members elected to provide oversight over the library. Engel and Dubuque will begin serving on January 1st.
