The BOE has no money, loses 3.5 million of surplus because THEY screwed up, had 2.7 million lost in aid, INCREASES this years spending in budget by 2.4 million, claims things are going to be tough, but now they call a SPECIAL meeting last night and purchase the Building on Midland Ave for 1 million dollars!

Teachers wake up, this BOE and Super are SPENDING 1 million dollars, to build posh offices for themselves in times where teachers could be facing layoffs and wage freezes and they go and buy a million dollar building which we really don't need, not to mention another $800,000 in renovations.

Thanks for the warning, but as teachers we are merely employees of the BOE. We don't have any say in how funds are spent. If your answer is true, it seems like now would be a bad time to make such an expenditure. Let's hope for better days. :huh:

It wasn't 1 million dollars. If you were at the budget meeting last week, you would know the answer for this issue. The money budgeted last year and had to be spent this year, for this project specifically. It could not be used to offset your taxes nor could it be used for anything else. If not spent, the money would have been lost to the State of NJ by the Governor.

Another lie and cover up!

I was at the budget meeting.....no discussion about Midland Ave.

In prior talks regarding purchasing Midland Ave. we were told we were to receive 1.8 million from the State in a form of grant and that would cover PURCHASING and RENOVATING Midland Ave.

NOW, let the record show we only received 1.2 million in grant money, have spent $975,000 to buy building. DO THE MATH. Legal costs, MORE soil testing, UNDERGROUND TANK removal, soil remediation. These items can cost tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars alone!!!!!

So let's see, in these times of financial ruins, should we make a command decision and chose not to go forward with the purchase of the building and not accept (give back the grant money) or should we take it and NOW the TAXPAYERS have to come up with another MILLION DOLLARS to have the soil remediated, architect fees and renovation COSTS? It is a NO BRAINER, pass, we do not need new BOE offices!!!!!

No lies, no coverups. You say you were at the budget meeting and there was no discussion about Midland Ave? Let me refer to a previous post regarding Campbell and Castelli as being dumber than dogshit. The Midland Ave purchase was what THEY weren't understanding and still don't. They questioned the point and were told THREE times by the business administrator that Kearny could not use that money for anything else. We would lose it. As for another million dollars, you are incorrect. All associated costs are budgeted from one year ago so the money is there.

You couldn't have been at the budget meeting, because if you were, the discussion of Midland Avenue was initiated by Paul Castelli. He kept asking questions. So you either weren't there, or you were asleep.

Or maybe you are Castelli writing this post? Or Campbell?

Paul asked about using the money in Capital to be transfered to offset the additional 2.4 million in spending in this years budget so that TAXPAYERS don't have to ante up! I thought it was a good question and just because he didn't understand why we couldn't do it does not make him as dumb as you. I give him credit for asking and trying to use money in a more proper way.

The money is WHERE? There is no money in the budget for anything, let alone the environmental nightmare which could be on the hands of the BOE. The entire budget won't be enough to clean things up if further findings are revealed.
