Are you interested in becoming a Library Trustee?

The Heermance Memorial Library election will be held at the library, on Tuesday October 16th from 10 AM to 9 PM. Each year residents of the town of Coxsackie elect three members to the nine-member Board of Trustees, the governing board of the library. This year there are 5 open positions, three 3 year positions; and a one year and a two year position, due to unexpected midyear resignations. Anyone in interested in running for a trustee position can pick up petition forms at the library or print from here.  Board members must be registered voters in the town of Coxsackie. In order to be listed on the ballot candidates need to submit a completed petition to the library by 5 PM on October 3rd. A completed petition must have the signatures of at least 25 registered voters from the town of Coxsackie. Residents of the town of Coxsackie also vote each year on the library tax assessment. The library tax is listed as a separate item on the Town of Coxsackie tax bill. Printed copies of the 2019 budget are available at the library or you can view it online.  All registered voters in the town of Coxsackie are encouraged to vote on October 16th.
