Cutchogue New Suffolk Library budget approved

Voters gave a resounding “yes” to the 2013 Cutchogue New Suffolk Library budget in voting Tuesday.

The overall vote was 119 to 29. Since the library covers two separate school districts, Mattituck-Cutchogue and New Suffolk, separate votes are required. In Cutchogue the vote was 96 to 28 and in New Suffolk only one person voted no with 23 yes votes.

The 2013 library budget calls for spending of $1,470,732.66,  just over $19,000 above the 2012 figure. A homeowner with property assessed at $6,000 will pay $7.23 in additional library taxes in Cutchogue and $7.34 in New Suffolk.
