HTS BOE Gives Back to Taxpayers!!!

The Harding Township Board of Education completed its annual audit for the 2008-2009 school year. As a result of fiscal prudence during these economically challenging times, the District maintained an excess surplus of $146,066.51 from the general fund. This surplus will offset the tax levy for next year.

The Board of Education was extremely impressed with the results of last year’s budget election, 310-92 in favor of the proposed budget. More taxpayers voted yes than total votes in the last four years, yielding the largest turnout since 1998. The passing percentage was the highest margin in Harding since before 1995 and one of the highest in the state of New Jersey.

Hopefully this excess surplus to mitigate next year’s budget further illustrates our commitment to the Harding Township Community and demonstrates our fiscal diligence. I encourage you to share this information with your committee and the community at large. We will look for the community’s support again this April.
