Updated Budget Information for the Boston Public Library

Amendment #737 has cleared the house. If it makes it through the senate, the BPL will get $.359 per capita for the Library of Last Recourse line item. This should be close to what the BPL projected overall from the state for the year but does not include other state sources. So we will see what that means at the next Trustees Meeting: May 10, 2011 - 8:30 AM - Central, Rabb Lecture Hall.See More

[saveBPL] Trustee Meeting, City Finances, and Weekend Events

Tuesday's trustee meeting introduced us to the newest member, Carol Fulp. She's a trainee of Paul LaCamera, so now we won't have any more confusing ties and you can guess which way the tiebreaker will go. Another millionaire Super Friend on the board. Is it too much to ask for a Trustee that makes < $250,000 a year? This time it's a friend of both the mayor and the governor: http://www.baystatebanner.com/local11-2010-04-15Don't…See More
