Town of Union residents will vote on a proposal to provide more money to operate public libraries in Endicott and Johnson City.

The funding referendum will be on the ballot in the villages and in the unincorporated sections of the town.

The increased allocations would be made available to the George F. Johnson Memorial Library in Endicott and Your Home Public Library in Johnson City.

Library officials say the facilities have received no additional funding in the past five years.

Endicott library director Seth Jacobus said if the measure is approved by voters, the annual tax increase would amount to less than $5 a year for a property assessed at $75,000.

The library funding proposition will be found on the back of the ballot for those voting in the town of Union.
