>Two Meetings Tonight That Shouldn’t Be Missed; MIddletown Board of Ed and Middletown Library Board of Trustees
If you attend the Middletown BOE meeting you will find out that Interim Superintendent Thomas Pagano has submitted his resignation, if lucky you will find out why.
I have been told that he is leaving due to health reasons, evidently he is very sick and can’t perform his duties as Superintendent of Schools. Funny, that is the same reason that recently elected BOE member Bob Banta gave when he handed in his resignation after only 1 board meeting.
If you happen to stop by the Middletown Library tonight, Library Director Susan O’Neal should be presenting the projected library budget (history and forecast) to the board of trustees.
From what I understand, it will demonstrate that transferring $500K of surplus funds to the township will mean the libarary will not recover to the 2010 funding level until 2022.
Knowing this, would the library board, as advocates for the library, vote for this transfer of funds to the Township? More than likely so, but should be? I think not, at least not all of it. The library is transferring nearly $250K more to the Township than legally required to do.
Both meetings should be interesting.
