UPDATE: Lakewood Board of Fire Commissioners Special Election Results

fire commissioners offc tlsAs earlier reported, the Lakewood Board of Fire Commissioners held a Special Meeting (Election) on December 12, from 2:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at the Fire District Administrative Offices on 316 River Avenue.

The result of this Special Meeting (Election) was approval by the voters to include two capital improvement projects in the 2017 Budget, which budget will ultimately be voted upon at the Fire District Election on February 18, 2017 by the legal voters within the Township.

One project is for renovations to Fire Station 68 at 733 Cedarbridge Avenue and the other project is for replacement of the roof to Fire Station 64 at 119 First Street.

The Board of Fire Commissioners was required by law to obtain voter approval in order to place these projects in its 2017 Budget, which budget will ultimately be voted upon by the legal voters within the Township at the annual Fire District Election on February 18, 2017.

“This is the reason why this Special Meeting (Election) on December 12, 2016 was so important,” said the Commissioners office. “Without voter approval, these two capital projects would not be included in the 2017 Budget.”

  1. Why do they make it so difficult to vote? Are there no rules about publishing the election and making the polling station accesible with parking etc.? It seems like they are trying to hide something.

  2. Lets not pretend this was something that it wasn’t. ONLY 85 people out of the entire town voted.

    There was no notice sent to the public, and the voting occurred by a busy intersection with only a few parking spots.

    When town voted on the 2017 budget, they will reject it, just as they rejected the 2016 budget. This vote only allowed them to bury these costs in the general budget.

  3. To above comments,
    Notice of this election was posted on TLS November 23 and again as a reminder the day of. Seeing as you are on TLS, unless you just discovered this site, you would have had opportunity to find out about this election. You either passed over the article or forgot about it.

  4. This is a SCAM!!! There were no notices sent in the mail (& To JBW – no I dont sit by TLS all day to see whats new – only come once in a while) We as the tax payers have the right to know when an election is held. More than that – THERE SHOULD NOT BE SEPARATE ELECTIONS FOR EACH SPENDING BILL. put everything on the ballet in November!!
