Library proposal approved by voters again
Excerpt from the statement by the Irondequoit Public Library Board of Trustees on the election results for the library proposal referendum:
Tonight, Irondequoit voters once again authorized a $13 million bond for the construction of a new central library on the Town Hall campus. The library board is thrilled and honored to continue to have the support of Irondequoit residents for this important project.
This will be the library that our community builds together; the library the meets the needs of all our residents and businesses; the library that Irondequoit deserves.
This library proposal has come after many, many years of discussions and studies. The vote tonight was another step in the process.
Just this year alone, we held 23 forums to educate the public, answer their questions and get valuable input. As we move forward, the community will continue to be engaged.
The Library Board looks forward to working on this project and making the town proud.
