Edison to lose $3.4 million in state municipal aid

Posted by edison1205 on March 18, 2010


Continuing with its punitive measures against towns like Edison, the state government released figures this evening showing that Edison Township’s state aid for next fiscal year will be cut by $3,431,507, or 17.6 percent.  This is over and above the school aid cuts announced yesterday (see post below).

In the meantime, here we are, 2 1/2 months into the current year, and the Mayor, Business Administrator, and Council have yet to propose a budget for the full year, continuing instead to rely on temporary stop-gap resolutions.

In the face of nothing but punishment coming from Trenton, we need leadership locally.  We hope to see it soon.
