Good question for candidates night. Though, even if they believe that it should be 100% paid for by the town there are 4 others who do not. So no bond would pass. The question is whether Mr. Cook and Mr. Taylor run again next year. Conceivably, if they do not then the library could have 3 pro library votes and it becomes a chance that we end up with the TC approving funding. But that is 2 years away and may not be an issue.

When it's all set and done, what's the breakdown between privately raised money and tax payer funding?

The answer varies a bit depending on which document on the Library Foundation site you refer to. The two best are:

http://www.cranburylibraryfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/funds-chart.jpg

and

http://www.cranburylibraryfoundation.org/TableofGifts.pdf

According to the table of gifts they have reserved (inclusive of money already spent on the project) $733K. However their funds chart lists $420K in reserve. Even if you presume all the $120K in sunk costs for the architect was taken from reserves, this would still add up to $580K, a material delta from the $733K listed in their other document.

Either way his would all be taxpayer contributions earmarked for library operations by state statute that they have collected by limiting their operating expenses (fewer hours, less programs, etc.). Additionally, their budget for construction assumes $475K the Township has agreed to pay to do all the grading and site prep, landscaping and parking for the library. Together that suggests, prior to any additional contributions from the Township or further taxpayer reserves contributions, ~1.05-$1.2MM is taxpayer contribution so far (depending which reserves figure is correct).

Their funds chart suggest they have received ~$1.5MM in donations so far and their table of gifts suggests they have another $250K in committed pledges not yet received, while their funds chart says unreceived pledges s $100K (some people make multi-year pledges so it's not unusual they wouldn't be received immediately).

I am surprised that a number of posts related to a referendum were deleted. None, that I saw, were offensive or inappropriate. As an example, mine simply speculated that a referendum would not pass because people could vote privately. The candidates' night of a year or two ago was telling - one candidate opposed public funding for the project and was greeted with eye rolling, shaking heads, and a sense of incredulity that he didn't support it. Most people want to be civil, and at the same time not be judged for whatever their stance is on this matter.

Yes this is odd. This site is run by the Lions club, so I suppose we could find out who is deleting posts.

Taking the bait just to get on with it... Looked on the home page. Saw nothing to establish what you say. Can you be specific?

about us on the front page does not indicate it is owned or run by the lions. If they did run it then certainly they would have said so.

What do you hope to accomplish with such an obvious lie? Anyone here has seen the homepage and knows it doesn't say that. If there is some hidden thing you are getting at, stop playing games and just show what you supposedly know. It's not even clever Trolling when what you write can be discredited in 2 seconds.

Is there some end game to this bizarre trolling attempt? Why does it feel like there's a 10-year-old behind these posts snickering at everyone looking for something that's not there?
