Liverpool Public Library 2021-22 Budget

Click above to see a copy of the budget that will be presented to registered voters of the Liverpool Central School District. It is side-by-side with the 2020-2021 budget. There is a 0 percent tax impact for the budget up for vote.

A public hearing about the budget will be held before the next monthly Board of Trustees meeting, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 5, in the Carman Community Room. The library will not be open for services at that time. If you wish to attend, please enter through the lobby to the Carman Community Room.

The LPL budget vote will be included in the Tuesday, May 18 elections, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the former Wetzel Road Elementary School gymnasium. It will be a separate line item from the LCSD budget. Also on the ballot will be two seats for the LPL Board of Trustees. The terms are five years. 

Two residents of the LCSD have turned in signed petitions to be included on the ballot. Kay Budmen and John Hluchyj are both concluding their first five-year term on the board and are running again. Budmen is finishing a year as the board president. 

A third seat will be vacated after current board vice president Donald J. MacLaughlin ends his current five-year term in June. The board will appoint a trustee for a one-year term following MacLaughlin’s departure.

2020-21 Library Budget

The budget votes were counted on Wednesday, June 17. The library budget passed 5,019 to 1,752.

Due to the pandemic all the voting was done completely by absentee ballots and we had a very high number of votes returned compared to previous years!

On Friday, May 1, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order regarding the annual Liverpool Central School District (LCSD) and LPL Budget Votes and Board elections. What would typically take place on the third Tuesday in May at the school will now be held remotely on Tuesday, June 9.The vote will take place exclusively by absentee ballots.

How will this work?

The district will mail out absentee ballots to all registered LCSD voters, with a postage paid return envelope on or about May 26. Voters will have until 5 p.m. on June 9 to submit their absentee ballot for inclusion in the vote. Any absentee ballots received after 5 p.m. that day will be deemed invalid. The mail deadline is now 5 p.m. June 16.

Unlike years past, budget and board candidate results will not be available immediately after voting is closed. Members of the Onondaga County Board of Elections will assist the district in counting ballots, and that process will take some time.

Information regarding the budget is posted in the links below and will also sent to LCSD families in the Budget Edition of the School Bell, the LCSD newsletter.
