Lockport’s Public Library’s budget for 2014-15 was overwhelmingly approved by voters earlier this week.

The $1.62 million budget, which carried a property tax levy of $1.3 million, received 221 yes votes over 37 no votes on Thursday. It represents a 1.57 percent tax levy increase and carries a spending increase of $10,610 over the 2013-2014 budget.

Newfane School District taxpayers will vote on a publicly funded budget for the first time on May 20. If passed, a $125,000 budget will be established for the 2014-2015 fiscal year and the library will become a school district library, meaning the funding for the library will be hereafter collected by the school district, in much the same way the Lockport Public Library's is. The estimated 27-cent-per $1000 library tax will replace the funding previously provided by the Town of Newfane.
