Board sets budget, welcomes trustees

August 22, 2013
The Grosse Pointe Library Board of Trustees approved its 2013-14 $5.3 million budget during a recent meeting.

The operating budget is $3,911,488 and the capital expenditures budget is $1,459,084 for a total budget of $5,370,572.

Board members also approved a millage rate of 1.5412 from the library’s original millage to generate revenue of $3,841,686 and .50 mils raising $1,246,330 from the additional millage of .70 passed by the voters in 2012.

Two trustees have been appointed by the cities they represent, each to serve one year. Elizabeth Vogel from Grosse Pointe Farms and Charles Sabino of Harper Woods. Sabino serves in the trustee-at-large position.

Library board meetings are held at 7 p.m. the fourth Thursday of every month, except for holiday times when dates will differ.

A full schedule of meetings can be found on the board’s page on the library website at gp.lib.mi.us. All 2013 meetings are at the Ewald branch library. The public can attend.
