Finance Board Approves Consolidation Study

This article originally appeared in the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Patch. Read the full article here 

 

The Local Finance Board in Trenton approved the application to study the consolidation of Scotch Plains and Fanwood on Wednesday afternoon.

 

Gina Genovese, Executive Director of Courage to Re-Connect, said this is a great day for taxpayers in New Jersey.

 

Members of the Finance Board, Mayor Mahr and attorney were present at the meeting.

 

To move forward, citizens will appoint two commisioners, one from each town.

 

Additionally each town’s council will choose a commissioner for the board. Then each four person group from each town will choose a fifth person for their group.

 

In total, their will be 10 commisioners from both towns. The study will be completed over the next three years.

 

The movement for this study has been completely driven by citizens. Genovese hopes this will save tax dollars for citizens and improve services.
