The Library develops a proposed working budget. Discussions are held in a series of Committee of the Whole meetings, all of which are open to the public. Drafts of the proposed budget are discussed in the Committee of the Whole meetings and posted on our web site. After a final draft is arrived at, the Board approves a working budget in the spring and that final working budget replaces the original draft on the web site.
The legal spending authority is set by the Budget and Appropriations ordinance, proposed in the fall and adopted after a public hearing. Future dates for these meetings will be readily available on our Library Board page.
