step of laying off twenty and a half positions. Kudos to BOE President Michelle Skurchak and Finance Chair Mike Rec for dealing with this in a responsible manner and for not asking residents to "go look at the township budget" as a way of deflecting attention from their responsibilities. The same can't be said of Mayor Short and the Committee.
Speaking of the Township Committee, when will its members tell us how they will address the $837K gap that exists in the municipal budget? How many positions are they prepared to eliminate? Or are they planning to use tax levy cap exemptions to impose another all-Republican 11% tax increase?
