Lakewood Township To Give 1 Million Dollars To The BOE

Need a loan or extra money? the Lakewood township has a surplus of money and they plan to give $1 million dollars to the Lakewood Board of Education. Not only are tax payers paying for the School tax but now the township is giving away money from the municipal portion of property taxes to the Board of Ed. It is the states obligation to provide the funding but since the township collected so much tax money its only right that they give it to the boe. There is a resolution for the Upcoming Township committee meeting  to grant the money 

"Resolution Of The Township Of Lakewood, County Of Ocean, State Of New Jersey, Providing School Funding For Lakewood Board Of Education For The 2017-18 School Year".

The BOE initially asked for a loan but officials said they cant loan and will give a grant instead. The money is expected to restore athletic programs that were cut from the budget. According to a report in the APP Committeeman Lichtenstein and Mayor Coles said they will approve the money, and Attorney Michael Inzelbuch said it will sway him to come back as board attorney if the loan is granted, but the state has to find a wa to provide more funding to the district.

      I just got my taxes raised by $2000 (based on a false assesment, I had my own appraisal last year, and it was 50k less).

      I had to replace the tires on one car after 18k miles due to the fact that the roads in this town are one big pothole.

      There is no park that I can take my children on a summer weekend due to the fact that the town has not added any parks since the population was less then half of what it is now.

      I was just I formed that my only child who got bussing, will no longer receive it, due to the fact that my home is 1.9 miles from her school.

      Yet, the town has money to give $1.1 million per year to the school district for sports, in addition to the $1 million annually that they she'll out for public school courtesy busing.

      The municipal taxes are not intended for the school district. Lakewood taxpayers are already paying the maximum amount for the school district.

  2. Since when does mayor Lichtenstein have any right to give away our hard earned tax dollars?

    Does Michael care about Lakewood parents who struggle to put food on the table?

    1. Are you surprised at Meir spending your tax money?
      Blame the Igud Hamosdos and SCK they are the ones pushing for MI to return to the boe. Rumor is They wanted the president of the boe out because it would be a clash between 2 personalities. They also got the scoop to pull a letter asking for the boe president to come back after his initial resignation letter. Now they instruct the puppets on the committee to spend a million bucks and bail out the boe. is this not corruption?

  4. And what about the kids who's parents must work 2-3 jobs just to pay for the property taxes. They can't be there for their children yet the igud and vaad members live in tax free homes and they instruct the politicians what to do and how to spend our tax dollars.

    1. Couldn't agree more, if they were so compassionate, let them pay for it out of their own pocket, very easy to be compassionate with others money. I pay in over $6k just for the school district portion of taxes and get ZERO in return.

  5. Can we revisit the sale of the Princeton Ave school building.
    Was there a public bid?

    1. Love that deal. They sold the building because it was too expensive to maintain. Only to pay a boatload more in rent to changed for the next few years. They ended up spending millions on rent and losing their building too. Such corruption.

  6. How about the township passes an ordinance that no employees of the township or school district can be on the payroll of any of it's vendors before they take MI back, would he still want to come back?

  7. They sold Princeton Ave School to BMG.
    THEN... "they leased by BMG's Chemed building".

    The BOE realized 5 years later the BMG Chemed took them to the cleaners.

  8. The way to solve these issues are 2 fold.
    1- register all children in public school.

    2- Get as

    1. If he really cared, he could have sued anytime offer the last 10 years.

    2. There already is pending litigation against the state.

    3. And MI had nothing to do with that pending litigation. That was taken on by another attorney in town who is actually sacrificing for this town, maybe he should be the BOE attorney instead of MI

    Meir Lichtenstein does not consider the money he allocated as the money of his friends and neighbors. I have had personal interactions with him where I was shocked by his blase attitude of spending taxpayer money. They are also just as blase about the safety of the people of lakewood. We need a regime change now more than ever.

    Just to put this into perspective . A million dollars adds about 75 dollars a year to an average homeowners property tax bill. Every new developmet of 100 homes (non senior) will cost the town approximately 2 million a year in services above the taxes being paid by the new housing. Times that by 8 or 10 developments every year and that means your taxes could rise about 1500 dollars aaverage per year, which is pretty much what has been happening for the last ten years. Meir Lichtenstein and Menashe don't want you to know that. Their livelihoods rely on large developments being built. Where is the outrage? Why are they not removed from office the same way our innocent neighbors were removed from their homes early in the morning? Where is the APP? How come I never saw an article questioning the Blue Claws deal or the inept running of The Strand Theater that Ray Coles profits from? Why doesnt the APP look into what kind of criminals are running half of the stores in our downtown? Fronts for drug dealers, prostitution and human trafficking. Why hasn't the APP investigated how much our town pays for equipment bought by the town manager? Too much work. Easier to blame some parents with special needs children or people trying to help others in our community. And to add insult to all of this, we pay for it.
