Board Resolution Regarding State of Emergency:
A motion to approve was made by Frank Brady and seconded by Steve Sheinkin, all voted in favor. Outlined in the resolution are current policies regarding quarantine leave, designations of essential employees and paid leave during closure or reduced hours.

Proposed Budget for 2020-2021:
A motion to approve was made by Frank Brady and seconded by Janet Lindner, all voted in favor. Highlights of the budget are a 0% increase in property taxes and total spending, an increase in the budget for salaries and for digital materials. These increases will be achieved through a reduction in the budget for physical library materials and from savings achieved through sustainability efforts. Reduced income from fines and rent is anticipated, but there is cash on hand to offset the loss.
