Derry library's proposed 2015 budget moves forward
The budget is coming in at 1.7 percent less than the fiscal year 2014 budget, said Jack Robillard, library trustee and treasurer, during a budget workshop last week. He appeared at the workshop with Susan Brown, who has been serving as assistant and acting library director.
An attempt to reduce the bottom line by approximately $26,796 for salary raises was defeated in a 4-2 vote. Councilor Michael Fairbanks abstained.
In voting against the cut, Councilors David Fischer and Joshua Bourdon praised library administrators for efficiently running the library and following a policy of not granting overtime.
Bourdon agreed, saying the budget is coming in less than last year and the staff isn't unionized and doesn't take benefits.
