This Day In History: 1934-01-18
The difficult financial times made it difficult for the Township council to meet the requests of various Township services as they drew up the budget for the coming fiscal year. Chief Smith requested a police radio and a typewriter. Previously he had to go to Ramsey to use their typewriter when he had to prepare his annual reports. The request was turned over to Committeeman Glasgow to look into prices and assess the need. The Northern Bergen Nursing Service requested as large a grant as the Township could afford. They reported that because of the Depression, the need for their services had increased greatly. Mahwah required more services than any other municipality in the territory, they reported. The Council voted them $100, the same amount they had received in 1933.
