Want to become a Library Trustee and Join the SMRLD Board of Directors?
The Six Mile Regional Library District Board of Trustees is seeking candidates to fill
a vacancy on our seven-member Board, which sets the library’s tax levy and
budget as well as library policies. Since 1990, when the library became a district,
the board has levied taxes for the purposes of maintaining a library for District
residents. The library will derive 95% of its operating revenue from property
taxes in fiscal year 2017.
Candidates may be selected to be interviewed by the Board. The appointment of
the individual chosen starts this summer and runs through April 2019. The
remaining term (through 2021) of this unpaid position will then be filled by a
candidate elected through the general consolidated election process in the spring
of 2019. At this time, the Board prefers to appoint a candidate who seriously
considers running for election in 2019.
