Library remodel part of Woodside budget

A major remodel of Woodside public library is part of the town's proposed annual budget to be discussed by the Town Council on Tuesday, June 12.

For the fiscal year starting July 1, there is money allocated to upgrade the in-pavement lights for two school crosswalks, repair or replace three bridges, repair two storm-drain facilities, and start on the library remodel.

The Town Council will review the budget with staff at the meeting starting at 7:30 p.m. in Independence Hall near the corner of Woodside and Whiskey Hill roads. The proposed budget will return for a public hearing and council action on Tuesday, June 26.

Much of the infrastructure work would be underwritten by other agencies. The $215,600 crosswalk project would be paid for from a federal Highway Safety Improvement Grant of $189,000 and $21,600 from San Mateo County's Measure A funds.

The $189,000 project to repair or replace the bridges would include $167,322 reimbursable through the federal Highway Bridge Program.

General fund revenues are expected to total $5,650,878 in fiscal year 2012-13, with expenses estimated at $5,560,862.
