The five members of the Norwalk City Schools Board of Education wholeheartedly endorse the upcoming renewal levy for the Norwalk Public Library. Even though the public library operates independently, state law dictates that the Norwalk City Schools District serve as the taxing authority and that the levy appear on the ballot as a Norwalk City School issue.
This renewal levy is not a new tax and does not increase the current tax rate. It simply renews a tax that has been in place since 1982. The money is used for various operating expenses such as book purchases, subscriptions, building maintenance, and employee salaries.
We all have much to be thankful for in the community of Norwalk. Our schools, hospital, and recreational facilities all contribute to our quality of life. The Norwalk Public Library is an integral part of the community and has been contributing to the quality of life in Norwalk since 1905. We urge your continued support.
