In addition to the school budget:
Proposition 2 would approve a roughly $2.8 million budget for the Westhampton Free Library, accounting for an increase of almost $130,000, or 4.7 percent, from the current year’s spending plan. The Westhampton Beach tax levy for this budget would be $2.16 million, a nearly 2.7 percent increase from this year’s levy of $2.1 million. The tax rate to support that levy would be a little more than 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, a 4 percent increase from this year’s rate of 48 cents. Therefore, a homeowner with a property assessed at $500,000 would pay approximately $253.17 in library taxes next year, an increase of about $11 from this year.
