The discussion was about the Library and the forthcoming referendum. After a brief opening the Board went into executive session and on its return engaged in a lively session with some members of the community about the right of the Odd Fellows to to remain in a private space on the second floor. See for yourself!
Still the Library situation! The wording of the referendum was presented for discussion. George Whalen, of Stissing National Bank, was there to answer some questions, but not much could be decided as he had not heard from the Odd Fellows about the disposition of their private space. My understanding, and I wish I could offer a better one, is that a municipality cannot purchase a property that is encumbered with space allocated to a private organization.
Well, watch for yourself and see if you can understand it any better!
