The Mahwah School budget was turned down by the voters for the second time. It lost by only five votes in District 3, Fardale, and by less than thirty in District 1, but was soundly defeated in District 2, with 57 votes for and 207 against. The Township Committee and the School Board was scheduled to meet to draw up the final budget. Education law provided for the budget adopted by the Township Committee being the official budget for the District without approval by the voters.
