Agenda item 10 (Use Of Buildings & Grounds) was pulled from the consent agenda and discussed at the September 20th BOE (Board Of Education) meeting. Board Vice President Loren Harms proposed that the Board approve the dates listed for September and October only.

“The reason why I made this motion is that in this request there’s quite a few dates,” Mr. Harms commented, “and the times are very long-dated in time that the facilities are going to be used.”

There were three (3) organizations which were listed: Cub Scouts Troop 116, the Church Of Assumption CYO, and Pop Warner. The three (3) organizations combined requested a total of 159 dates between September 2011 and June 2012.

“I have a concern on not the use of them and whose using them, on just the times and the amount of times that they’re requesting,” Mr. Harms stated. He requested that the Facility Committee review the policy and have something for the Board’s meeting in October. Scott Nelson, as chair of Facilities Committee, was asked to meet with Loren Harms to address the issue.

“It has nothing to do with the organizations that are requesting this. It’s just the dates that they’re requesting and the length of time for each day that they’re requesting, ” Mr. Harms concluded, “We just have to come up with some kind of guideline so we can give everybody the opportunity in the borough and our students to be able to use it.”

Roselle Park Cub Scouts #116  requested use of buildings for den meetings.  The BOE approved only two (2) out of the seven (7) Thursdays that were requested at the Sherman School library for one (1) hour and three (3) out of the 12 Fridays requested in the gymnasium.

The Church of Assumption CYO Basketball requested use of the Roselle Park Middle School gymnasium for 76 dates between September 13, 2011 through June 8, 2012 for seven (7) hours each day. 63 of those dates were not approved.

The Roselle Park Pop Warner requested use of the Sherman School gymnasium Monday – Thursday for cheerleading practice for a total of 63 dates with the Board approving 45 of those dates. A full listing of dates can be viewed below:
