Upcoming Library and School Budget Vote

The Schoharie Central School budget vote for the 2020-21 fiscal year will be held on June 9 via absentee ballot  due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. A proposition to increase the Schoharie Free Library Association’s annual budget by $10,000 per year will be included on the school budget ballot. For most taxpayers, this tax increase is about the price of a medium size ice cream cone and will allow us to continue to provide programming for all residents of the school district.

Voters will receive a postage prepaid absentee ballot that will include the Schoharie Free Library’s proposition. The absentee ballot must be returned by 5 p.m. on June 9, 2020 in order to be counted.
