Library Election, June 9
The Hauppauge Public Library will be having an election for two trustee positions on June 9 via absentee ballot that the Hauppauge Union Free School District is running. Governor Cuomo via Executive Order allowed the Library to request our vote be held along with the School District who graciously agreed. The Library thanks the Board of Education, Superintendent Dennis O’Hara, and Jacqueline I. Pirro, Assistant Superintendent for Business & Operations and their staffs for helping us through this.
The Library Board of Trustees have frozen the tax appropriation request to the amount requested last year. Therefore no vote is needed on the budget for 2020. The Board of Trustees have also instituted a hiring freeze until December 31, 2020.
Expect to receive a mailing from the school district that will have our two trustee positions up for vote, along with the school budget and Board of Education races. All questions about the vote should be directed to Lori DeGeorge, District Clerk.
Tuesday April 7, 2020 from 10am – 9pm Voting will take place at the Hauppauge Public Library. Voting will be for the election of two library trustees and to adopt the proposed library budget for the period from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Trustee nominating petitions are available at the Library and must be filed by March 9, 2020 by 5 pm. You may vote in the library election if you are:
