Sheridan County’s library system is looking at going into the new budget year with $70,000 less in revenue.
Library Director Cameron Duff said that includes about a $34,000 cut in funds from the county as well as a reduction in funds from some of the library system’s endowments.
Duff added the budget is still in draft form at this time. Trustees will meet on July 6 to approve a formal budget, and that will be presented to county commissioners for their consideration on July 7.
He said there may be some adjustments to the library budget as commissioners receive final revenue numbers for the county as a whole. That includes federal PILT funds, one-cent tax funds and direct distribution from the state of Wyoming.
Duff said the library system is still looking at an overall budget of about $1.5 million, which is about a 3 percent reduction in revenues. But, he said, the budget figures are still very preliminary at this time.
