The school board has hired a new superintendent, Karen McKeon, and a temporary business administrator. They have also hired an architect, Dicara Rubio, of Wayne for the design and expansion of EJ. In addition, all the “choice slots” (slots available for tuition paying students who choose to attend the LBI district) were filled for the 2011-2012 school year. (Some slots were taken by Beach Haven Residents). The school district also authorized the sale of the Long Beach Island Grade School property in Ship Bottom.
There is still an on-going discussion about having Attorney Vito Gagliardi come and speak to the group regarding the feasibility of a lawsuit which would change the LBI school tax burden at SR.
The BEACH PROJECT will begin this winter in Long Beach Township. Great Lakes Dredge received the contract. The project is scheduled to be completed by June 15, 2012.
Since the JCT would like more involvement and participation from the community taxpayer organizations, elections will be held on November 7, 2011 at 7:00 PM in the library. Please send a representative from your association to the next meeting as community involvement is necessary to make the JCT a success!
The meeting was adjourned at 8:35 PM.
