Candidate petitions for the position of library trustee are available at the Saugerties Public Library. Three five-year terms are up for election in September. Anyone who is a resident of the town of Saugerties is eligible to run. Due to the Corona virus, only 18 signatures are needed on petitions (NYS Governor's Executive Order 202.51). Petitions can be picked up at the library any time the library is open. Completed petitions must be returned to the library by 5p.m. on Monday, August 17, 2020, to be on the September ballot.
Copies of the proposed budget are available at the library and may be picked up anytime the library is open, or you can find it on our website under “about us.” The Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on the proposed 2021 budget at the regularly scheduled board meeting on Thursday, August 13, at 6p.m. The meeting will either be held at the library at 91 Washington Avenue or the meeting will be electronic via “GoToMeeting” depending on the Corona virus status.
Trustee elections and budget vote will be held at the library on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, from 10a.m. to 8p.m. Absentee ballots will be available after August 31.
