The Matawan Borough Council is holding a special budget meeting on Wed. 3/21/07 at 6pm. How strange to hold a meeting at 6pm when most people aren't home from work yet? This makes one curious as to what the reason for this could be. It should be at the very least an excellent one as it pertains to the Budget for Matawan Borough. On the Agenda for the Borough Council Meeting on Tues., March 20th is a resolution Ordinance 07-07 to exceed the 2007 Budget and establish a cap. Well isn't that like closing the barn door after the horse gets out!
Our Borough Council has to learn that you can't spend money you don't have. As we residents have to do....live within your means. The Council cannot tax us anymore because they can't manage their money. We residents would lose our homes if we couldn't pay our mortgages. What is the worst that can happen to the Borough Council members---they won't get re-elected. Which is more important to you as a taxpayer? You decide.
Come to the meeting and express your objections to exceeding the Budget!
