Savings from chapel no savings at all?

“Get involved with your county government.
“The monthly meeting of our Cumberland County Board of Freeholders meets this Thursday evening, at 7 p.m., at the Cumberland County Courthouse on Route 49 in Bridgeton.
“Make it a point to attend a meeting and get involved.
“Remember that months ago, the freeholders voted to get a bond for $1,000,000 for the veterans chapel.
“After many complaints from the voters, the plan is pared back to approximately $700,000.
“Although the costs for the chapel has changed, our freeholders will still spend the entire $1,000,000.
“This is a capital expenditure, but some of the things that are being purchased with the $300,000 are borderline capital items.
“I feel they are actually expenses that should be shown in the (just agreed upon) budget.
“The fact that the cost of the chapel is reduced … we did not save any money.
“This is how the freeholders get additional funds without asking for additional funds.
“Learn how your county government works.
“All of you people“Get involved with your county government.

“All of you people that were laid off because of our budget should go to the meeting and see if you can be hired by the construction company that will build the chapel.
“Maybe they can get a job with the firm that is designing the building.
“It is always interesting and all of their decisions affect you and your family.
“Make sure you know where your taxes are spent.
“Be sure you can give your opinion for those decisions
