The Montauk Library has issued its budget proposal in the amount of $732,121 for 2013-14. The proposed tax rate is estimated at $22.88 per $1,000 of assessed value. The increase in the tax rate is less that a dollar over last year’s. The budget vote will take place at the library on April 27 from 2 to 8 p.m.
