The Township is expected to save about $100,000 by merging the Community Center as part of Parks and Recreation, under the Public Works Department, TLS has learned.
By enacting the ordinance, the Township will save costs by utilizing the available maintenance and other services within the Department of Public Works, an official said.
The Community Center on 4th Street was founded about 45 years ago in Lakewood when the Board of Education had severe issues with its public school children. The Center proved to be a constructive outlet for hundreds of Middle and High School students with the various after-school programs.
Some of the programs within the Center, include Tom Ross’s basketball league, Omega 13, and Rabbi Simcha Greenwald and Rabbi Chaim Leib Marmorstein’s evening program among others. During the day, the Center is used by seniors as well.
The first reading of the ordinance is expected to take place at the next Township Committee meeting. TLS.
