Budget Votes, Board Candidate Selection This Week
Two new members to be appointed to Bloomingdale Board of Education.
Bloomingdale BOE to Select New Members
The Bloomingdale Public Schools Board of Education will be appointing two new members to board seats at a meeting Monday night. One of the vacancies is that of Rich Dellaripa, who was required to leave the board after being elected to the Bloomingdale Council in November. The second vacancy is from Andrew Samuel, who resigned from his seat because of other commitments.
The board will publicly interview candidates (three have expressed interest) and then discuss their choices in closed session before announcing the new members to the public. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the Walter T. Bergen School library.
Bloomingdale School Budget to Be Voted On
Also at Monday's meeting, the school board will be voting on its 2013-14 school budget. While a public vote is no longer needed on the school budget since the board decided to eliminate the public vote and move the school board election to November last year, the board must still vote to adopt the budget formally.
State aid figures released last week show a flat amount of aid for Bloomingdale Public Schools in the 2013-14 year.
Butler BOE to Vote on School Budget
The Butler Board of Education will also be voting on its 2013-14 school budget at a special meeting Tuesday. Like other tri-boro school districts, the Butler board decided to eliminate a budget vote and move its board member election to November to coincide with the general election.
The Butler Board of Education will be meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the Butler High School library.
