Meeting Agenda HERE
Tonight the Lakewood BOE will host its monthly meeting 6:30 pm at 855 Somerset avenue, Lakewood, NJ Wed September,21, 2016
-BOE is paying for courtesy busing of the non mandated public school students while the private schools non mandated have to pay $150 per child.
-BOE has a fleet of 30 buses that are not all used during the day why cant the buses also be used to transport the mandated private schools who are short on buses. These buses were purchased at twice the fair market value.
-BOE is asking for a  $5,640,183 loan from the state after projecting a $12,000,000 deficit for the upcoming year, despite raising property taxes to the max this year and not giving courtesy busing WHERE IS ALL THIS SPENDING GOING???

  2. Keep spewing your hate. The spending is entirely controlled by the State monitors for the last several years.

    1. Yes they come to the State officials claiming to speak on behalf of a 10000 block vote. What would any elected offical do when facing off with a lobby group.

  5. So we get ripped off twice:

    1. BOE show a double charge for busses that should cost half they did, increase our taxes and only service a fraction of the local population.

    2. And LSTA get 17m, ask BOE to take routes, and then (probably) pocket the balance. I.e they got $$ for all of Lakewood, yet a decent portion will be serviced by BOE. Where does the Moola go?

    And we sit like nitwits, wondering if we'll have bussing by Succos, while Askans of Lakewood pocket the dough.

  6. Donald Trump would have had this done ahead of schedule and under budget. Just saying.

  7. If the state is giving them 17 million, and there are 24 thousand kids that need busing that equals $709 per child. That is about the amount the bus companies are charging.
    Soooo....can someone please explain me why the consortium is charging some families an extra $150 per child??

    If you would listen or read what they said , you would not ask the question.
    The answer.
    Because Some of those maditory kids are out of the pot,they are getting aid in law, so it's (the average) in the upper $600'

    1. They are out of the pot because the big schools gobbled up all the busing for their non mandated students leaving mandated students from other smaller schools with no buses.
