With the retirement of two of its longest serving members fast approaching, the Middleburgh Board of Trustees is in need of a few good people to step up to the plate.
That was the message Library Director Teresa Pavoldi delivered to board members on Monday night, as neither of the soon to be open seats have received much interest from the general public since the petition process began on February 28.
Requiring only twenty-five signatures from residents of the Middleburgh Central School District, the trustee petition needs to be submitted by Saturday, March 28th to ensure placement of its candidate on the Tuesday, April 28 library ballot.
Anyone over the age of eighteen and residing in the school district can pick up a petition for either open position, which have been caused by the term-limiting of longtime Trustee Sarah Beekman and the retirement of Trustee Jim Spencer.
Located at 323 Main Street interested residents may pick up a petition at the library's front desk during its hours of operation.
The Middleburgh Library Board of Trustees meets monthly on the second Monday at 6:30 pm in the Community Room.
