The new President of the State League of Municipalities, Chuck Chiarello, painted a bleak picture for cities across the state during his testimony before the Senate Budget Committee’s public hearing on the state’s spending plan. Chiarello, who is also the Mayor of Buena Vista Township, told lawmakers that those who are trying to run towns are facing an array of problems including having to layoff workers in order to close budget gaps. Representatives from the NJEA, who testified, said school districts are still reeling from cuts in the last two budgets.
