This Day In History: 1963-03-16
Although the contracts for the repair of the Betsy Ross, George Washington and Commodore Perry Schools had already been awarded at the meeting of March 9th, the Mahwah Board of Education rejected all of the bids of repairs at the Mountain School. All of the bids came in over budget. The architect was asked to see if the specifications could be altered somewhat to make the projected repairs cheaper. Bids for over $500,000 in bonds were advertised to pay for those and other projects.
