Beth Rumsey, Staff Writer

In a special meeting of the Osgood Public Library held on Tuesday, September 9, attorney for the Osgood Public Library Board Larry Eaton announced that the proposed budget for 2010 has been received from the DLGF (Department of Local Government Finance).

According to Eaton, the budget was cut $10,000, which will reduce the previous tax rate by 1.37%.
According to Osgood Public Library Director Emily Kruse, the tax rate last year was .0606. The new rate has been figured to be about .0528 upon confirmation from the DLGF.

All along, Richard Parks, treasurer for the OPL board noted that he felt something was not figured correctly and felt it would be a lower rate as was the case when the announcement came last week.
