Voters in Cutchogue and New Suffolk will go to the polls today, Tuesday, to pass judgement on their library’s 2013 budget, which carries a tax rate increase of 1.67 percent.
That figure complies with state law requiring all local taxing districts, including town government and schools, to limit year-to-year property tax increases to 2 percent or less.
The Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library is proposing a new spending plan of $1,470,732.66, which is just over $19,000 above the current figure. The total tax increase for a homeowner with property assessed at $6,000 would be $7.23 in Cutchogue and $7.34 in New Suffolk.
Voting takes place at the library from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
