Attention Minisink Residents:
Please be aware there will be a referendum vote to establish and open a Minisink Valley Public Library on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 between the hours of NOON and 9:00PM.
The polling place for Voter District #1 (persons residing in Greenville, Minisink, and Wawayanda Townships) shall be at the Minisink Valley CSD Intermediate School on Route 6.
The polling place for Voter District #2 (persons residing in Mount Hope Township, and those portions of Wallkill and Mamakating Townships which are within the MVCSD) shall be at the Otisville School, 2525 Mount Hope Road.
There are two public hearings scheduled regarding the proposed MVPL’s budget of $543,500.
· Tuesday, October 4, 2022
· Tuesday, October 11, 2022
Both hearings shall be held at the Greenville Resource Center (GRC), 1539 Route 6, Port Jervis, NY, at 6:30PM.
Please be advised that by creating a library district, the library becomes its own entity. The library district can act on its own accord to levy taxes, hold referendum elections, or annex new properties into its service area. Board members to a library district are elected rather than appointed.
Your real estate tax bill will reflect the library district becoming its own line item (much like the school district, Town and County are their own lines on your tax bill).
PUBLIC LIBRARY DISTRICTS
New York State Education Department defines a Public Library District as a public library which has a process that requires public election of its trustees, secures 60 percent or more of its operating revenue through a public budget vote, and ensures financial accountability by presenting a written budget annually to appropriate funding agencies and the public. The budget would enable the library to meet or exceed minimum standards and carry out its long-range plan of service. Public Library Districts in New York State can be a School District Public Library, a Special Legislative District Public Library or an Association Library District.
Please know that Minisink residents may obtain a library card to the Port Jervis Library (at no cost) with access to the member libraries of the Ramapo Catskill Library System. Call or stop by Minisink Town Hall for additional information and registration form.
