Five Things You Need to Know: Budget Hearing, Rowan Grad

It's a busy few days in both West Deptford and Gloucester County.

1. The West Deptford municipal budget hearing is tonight at 7 p.m. during the committee's work session meeting. If you have questions, comments or concerns about the township's , you should be there. We've included the agenda as a PDF above.

2. Rowan University holds its graduation tomorrow morning–if you're planning on going, or are going to be in Glassboro at all during the day, keep in mind that Route 322, from Bowe Boulevard to Main Street in Glassboro, will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

3. Want to help support local kids? Boy Scout Troop 295 is teaming up with Bruster's in Woodbury Heights to raise money for new tents and camping gear. Head out for some ice cream Saturday evening, and the Scouts will get a portion of what you spend.

4. Mustang fans can check out their favorite muscle car on Saturday at the All Mustang Car Show at ACE Ford in Woodbury. There were more than 100 Mustangs last year, from classics through today.

5. It's prom season, and there's only eight days until West Deptford High School's junior/senior prom at Auletto's in Deptford. Thankfully, we don't have to deal with anything crazy around prom, .

I've been the the "municipal budget hearing" before, and it's an absolute joke. They don't present any information, they just ask if you have any questions about it. Last year, a bunch of us went expecting to get a budget presentation, like the school did a couple months before, but all we got was the mayor muttering asking if anyone has anything about the budget, no, ok, moving on. Truthfully, even if they did do an actual budget presentation, it wouldn't much matter. The committee is just like the BOE; the public meetings are for show.
