Page 12 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • May 6, 2009 Midland Park Venditti re-elected to head board of education Midland Park Board of Education President Richard Venditti was re-elected to another term at the helm of the ninemember board during last week’s reorganization meeting. Trustee Robert Schiffer was re-elected vice-president. “I would personally like to see the district start now in formulating next year’s budget and looking for other ways to raise revenue other than from the taxpayers,” Venditti said when asked about his goals for the new term. “I think we need to start looking at future budgets even more closely than we do now.” Venditti, who is starting his ninth year on the board, said he would ask Superintendent of Schools William Heebink and the board’s finance committee to look into possible creative alternatives to generate revenue, such as grants, tuition options and partnerships with corporate America. “I think we need to dig deeper and at least satisfy ourselves that if there are other alternatives, we have explored them all,” he said. The board president also had praise for former trustee Michael Hahn, who lost his bid for re-election, and words of welcome for his successor, Maryalice Thomas Hagerty. “I would like to thank Mike Hahn for his service to the district, especially for his effort in spearheading our new technology committee and the improvements that the district is going to realize with minimum costs. Also, I would like to welcome Maryalice. Between her educational background and history with the community, she will be a great addition to the board. I look forward to working with her,” he added. A CPA and licensed personal financial specialist, Venditti is a former president and treasurer of the Midland Park High School Booster Association, and has served as treasurer and secretary of the Midland Park Baseball Association. He formerly coached the boys’ and girls’ traveling soccer teams. For the past 12 years, he has sat on the Steering Committee for the Bergen Bike Tour, which benefits Tomorrows Children’s Fund and the Volunteer Center of Bergen County. A former board president, Schiffer was re-elected last month to his eighth term on the board. He has chaired its finance committee for the past 18 years. He is the founder and managing director of Wasco Capital Services of Glen Rock and is the former chairman of the Midland Park Board of Recreation. A former president of the Girls Softball League and the High School Boosters Association, he co-founded the Midland Park Basketball Association. Marlow Park (continued from page 5) the existing lots were not combined into one, giving each of the buildings its own lot. Attorney Buomocore said maintaining the existing setup gives the applicant more flexibility while a change would not simplify the complexity of the situation. Board attorney Darryl Siss pointed out that any new building proposed for the subdivided lot would have a new set of requirements to comply with and may need a different set of variances than those faced by the subdivision alone. Board Chairman Kent Rigg questioned why so much excess land was being allotted to the new lot. Tsapatsaris said the line was being drawn at a natural spot, pointing out that the property was not suitable for any other use. The 2004 proposal had allocated only 1.2 acres to the proposed building.
