Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • May 13, 2009 Glen Rock Council, school board discuss cuts up to $950,000 by John Koster The Glen Rock Borough Council and the Glen Rock Board of Education will meet again this week after discussing possible school budget cuts ranging from a low of $415,000 to a high of $950,000 in the wake of the April 21 budget defeat. The Glen Rock school budget of $38,163,970 was defeated 973 to 804, the widest margin of any budget defeat in Northwest Bergen County. School budgets were also rejected by the voters in Allendale, Ramsey, Upper Saddle River, and at Northern Highlands Regional High School. Several residents turned out at the most recent public meeting of the Glen Rock Council to urge the governing body to recommend significant cuts in the defeated school budget. Council and board members have conferred about the budget cut several times since the defeat. The school is now working on a $45million expansion program, which was supported by a referendum. The Activities Club of Glen Rock and surrounding communities will host an Open House at its May 19 meeting at the Community Church of Glen Rock. The session will begin at 12:30 p.m. Club President Richard Fitzgerald and members cordially invite retired and semi-retired men from Glen Rock and the surrounding communities to attend this event.
