    STATE CONTRACT VENDORS


  9. To approve the rejection of the Proposal received for the Grant Writing/Fundraising Firm RFP, due to non-compliance. Added 04/08/2020


  10. To approve a Resolution as follows: Added 04/08/2020
    WHEREAS, Assembly Bill 3902, currently pending in the State Legislature, would authorize the Department of Community Affairs to permit municipalities to delay the transmission of property tax revenues to school districts during gubernatorial-declared emergencies; and
    WHEREAS, New Jersey's public schools are highly dependent on property tax revenue to support education programs; and
    WHEREAS, on average, local property taxes constitute close to 60% of public school revenue, with the percentage even greater in a significant number of districts; and
    WHEREAS, a delay in payments from municipalities would result in a financial crisis for school districts, seriously disrupting the educational process—and bringing it to a halt; and
    WHEREAS, although public school buildings are closed during the current health emergency, the education of our students is taking place through remote learning and home instruction; and
    WHEREAS, continued timely transmission of school property taxes is critical for the education process to continue without interruption; and
    WHEREAS, even though municipalities are designated as the authorities to collect property taxes, these taxes are levied for specific purposes—e.g., municipal, school, county, fire district—and these obligations must continue to be met; and
    WHEREAS, as currently written, A-3902, which is intended to ease a financial burden on municipalities, would place a severe strain on school districts and the students and families that they serve; and
    WHEREAS, the Brick Township Board of Education recognizes the impact of the current public health emergency on the state and local governments, as well as local school districts, but believes this legislation would worsen the situation for our communities.
    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Brick Township Board of Education urges the State Senate and the Governor to oppose A-3902.
    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution be delivered to Governor Phil Murphy, State Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin; and the 10th Legislative District’s representatives in the state Senate and General Assembly.
    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that copies of this resolution be sent to the New Jersey School Boards Association.
