This Day In History: 1926-01-01
A rise in Township relief expenditures of nearly six thousand dollars pushed the annual budget up to $47,731.11 from $43,941.78 over 1935, but a surplus revenue appropriation from the State kept the amount to be raised from taxation, $25,941.78 at the same level as the year before. Hohokus Township (now Mahwah Township) was the first municipal governing body to have their budget in place. At the organization meeting James Devine was chosen Chairman again. Municipal officers were chosen and the special police appointed for the local churches and for the big estates on Valley Road.
