Susquehanna Community School District’s 2015-2016 proposed schedule is not yet approved, but it’s on the table for review. It’s been school policy for at least the last few years to begin with two four-day weeks to ease everyone into the academic mode. Next school year’s schedule takes it a notch higher with three four-day weeks front-loaded in August/September. With a proposed start on Tuesday, August 25, 2015, the school year would wrap up on May 31, 2016 if no snow days are added to the end of the year. A second innovation to the schedule would be the addition of Veteran’s Day as a day off from school.
On February 18th the New Milford Township supervisors held their first meeting in the newly renovated building. A small group met in the comfortable meeting space for the usual brief meeting.
It was announced that the township was in the process of purchasing a new 2015 Mack truck on the CoStars program. The vehicle was expected to have an 11 foot plow and a spreader.
Mr. Shibley announced that they had received a letter stating that a traffic research project was to be run on selected township roads. This would mean a rubber hose would be stretched across the road to count the cars. The reasoning came down to liquid fuels money, the desire was to see if there was enough traffic on the roads to support the liquid fuels money. The letter said that this study would have a direct effect on the future budget.
