If you missed it, check out today’s story on the Ossining Public Library budget defeat.
A record number of voters weighed in on the $4.2 million budget that went down by a vote of 1,070 to 699. Last year, there were 891 votes cast, library officials said.
Voters were also, for the first time in the library’s history, able to elect members to the Board of Trustees. Before, trustees were appointed but the state Board of Regents approved an amendment to the more than 100-year-old charter.
Incumbents Peter Capek and Stephanie Brail won two seats on the seven-member board. The library board plans to meet next week to work on a new budget and to set a date for a revote, officials said.
