State Threatens to Take Local Property Taxes - Impact on Library Services Would be Severe
The State, concerned about the possibility that the May 19th ballot initiatives may not be successful, is now considering the option of borrowing 8% of local property tax money. Since property taxes comprise a significant portion of SCPL's budget, and a loss of additional revenue would exacerbate our already challenging budget crisis, the library could potentially lose as much as $578,000 in FY 2009-10.
YOU CAN HELP! The Friends of SCPL have initiated a postcard campaign to tell our local legislators that borrowing property tax revenues would devastate library services. Postcards are pre-addressed to our legislators and are available at all branches.
