Come Out and Vote on Tuesday, March 2
12:00 noon to 9 PM at 459 Main Street

Registered voters residing in the Oneida Public Library’s Special Legislature Library District can vote in the election for the one seat on the OPL Board of Trustees that will open up July 1 and vote on the board’s proposed operating budget for the library’s upcoming fiscal year, July 1, 2021–June 30, 2022.

The only announced candidate for the open board seat is Michael J. Kaiser, currently chair of the City of Oneida Civil Service Commission and member of the city’s Traffic Safety Advisory Board. The operating budget being proposed for the OPL’s FY 2021-2022 is $450,407.

The proposed budget reflects an increase of 1.56 percent over the current fiscal year’s operating budget, while the proposed tax levy of $398,407 shows a 1.77 percent increase over that of the current year’s levy.
