On February 11, the BOE formally accepted the offer from the State for debt service aid of up to 40% of the cost of the work in the March 8th referendum. It was explained that although the State offers up to 40% the BOE is using a more conservative estimate of 34% in its presentations to the public as the actual appropriation varies from year to year. The actual wording of the referendum as an accurate descriptor of the already approved project packages was also passed. Lastly the BOE confirmed the locations and timing (7AM-9PM) of the polling places for March 8th. WARNING: If you usually vote at Crows Woods or Borough Hall your polling place is different. Read your sample ballot when it comes in the mail.
