2020-21 Library Budget

A big THANK YOU to our patrons and voters!

The budget votes were counted on Wednesday, June 17.

The library budget passed 5,019 to 1,752 and Ashley Gouger was voted in as Trustee with 5,639 votes.

Due to the pandemic all the voting was done completely by absentee ballots and we had a very high number of votes returned compared to previous years!



Everyone should have received their ballots in the mail if they were registered to vote. The governor has extended the deadline for mail ballots to be received to Tuesday, June 16. Ballots will be counted after that date.

The library is Proposition 3 on the ballot.

On Friday, May 1, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order regarding the annual Liverpool Central School District (LCSD) and LPL Budget Votes and Board elections. What would typically take place on the third Tuesday in May at the school will now be held remotely on Tuesday, June 9.The vote will take place exclusively by absentee ballots.

How will this work?

The district will mail out absentee ballots to all registered LCSD voters, with a postage paid return envelope on or about May 26. Voters will have until 5 p.m. on June 9 to submit their absentee ballot for inclusion in the vote. Any absentee ballots received after 5 p.m. that day will be deemed invalid. 

The mail deadline is now 5 p.m. June 16.

Unlike years past, budget and board candidate results will not be available immediately after voting is closed. Members of the Onondaga County Board of Elections will assist the district in counting ballots, and that process will take some time.

Who is eligible to vote?

Eligible voters must be:

Citizens of the United States;
18 years of age or older;
Residents of the school district for at least a 30-day period immediately preceding the election; and
Registered with the district Board of Voter Registration or the Onondaga County Board of Elections.
Residents who are not registered with the district can do so on Tuesday, June 2, at the District Office (195 Blackberry Road in Bayberry) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. (more details to follow).

Where can I learn more about the proposed budget and board candidates?

Information regarding the budget is posted in the links below and will also sent to LCSD families in the Budget Edition of the School Bell, the LCSD newsletter.

The LPL Board of Trustees also held a virtual public hearing regarding the proposed 2020-2021 budget on Wednesday, May 27, at 6:30 p.m.
