Tim Niver, director of the Victor Farmington Library, invites community members to attend an information session at 6:30 p.m. May 11 via Zoom to learn about the upcoming budget vote and ask questions about the proposed change. 

Residents of the Victor Central School District will vote on a 3-cent tax increase per $1,000 in assessed property value to augment the library’s yearly tax funding for the 2022 calendar year. The in-person vote will run from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. May 18 at Victor Primary School, 953 High St.

The proposal amounts to an estimated increase from $25 to $28 per $100,000 of assessed value on properties in Victor CSD. If the vote passes, a house valued at $300,000 will contribute an additional $9 to the library per year.

“The small increase would be used to mitigate increased operating costs, including higher material costs and the expected impact of New York state’s minimum wage increase,” Niver said. “It will also allow us to continue exploring a larger, more modern library for Victor and Farmington.”

News and information about the library tax vote is available on the library’s website. Visit victorfarmingtonlibrary.org to register for an information session. Anyone unable to attend can call 585-924-2637 or email tniver@pls-net.org for information.
