Budget Hearings, Major Road Project Plans This Week
What you can expect this week in Mahwah
It’s shaping up to be a busy week in Mahwah. Here’s a look at some of the stories you can expect to see on Patch. Have an idea for another you’d like to see? Email it to Jessica.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mahwah will continue its 2013 budget hearings this week. So far, the township council has reviewed and cut the budgets of the senior center, DPW, recreation department, municipal clerk, mayor’s office and a few other departments in the township, which members said is in an effort to save taxpayers money. Once all of the budget hearings are complete, an official 2013 township budget, which determines the municipal tax rate, will be introduced.
Fewer roads may be repaired in Mahwah this year, thanks to one major road construction project that will cost about $725,000 to complete. And, the major project will cause on of the township's through roads to be closed for a few months. Check Patch this week for details.
Helping Fire Family
A Mahwah family that lost its home and all of its possessions in a fire last month is getting some help from township residents this week. The Mahwah Elves dinner and dance to benefit the Mann family is Friday. Check Patch for details and a photo gallery from the event.
