LoHud reports the newly renovated and expanded Mamaroneck Public Library has proposed a 20.38 percent tax-rate increase next year. That translates to an $80 rise in the average homeowner’s library tax bill, currently about $500.
Library officials say this is a one-time step.
Voting for the a $2.72 million budget will be held from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Dec. 14 at the library, 136 Prospect Ave.
To finance the new library, $6.5 million was raised in private donations and $13 million was borrowed, to be paid off through 2034.
