Track and Field Project Update
On Tuesday, September 23 at a regularly scheduled meeting, the Ho-Ho-Kus Board of Education approved a resolution to hold a referendum for a construction project to renovate the school’s Lloyd Road track and field. Public voting will be held for Ho-Ho-Kus residents on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 between 2:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.

The specific ballot language will be approved by the Ho-Ho-Kus Board of Education at its regular meeting on October 21st. The proposed track and field renovations will be in the amount of $2,172,000 for a rubberized track and artificial surface field with organic fill. This project is eligible for Debt Service Aid from the State of New Jersey for approximately $700,000 or up to 40 percent of the total cost of the project. The Board is planning to host presentations for Ho-Ho-Kus residents over the next two months and more information will become available on the Ho-Ho-Kus School website in the next few weeks.
