Dozens of residents rally in support of the Library

Leonia Life reports on the Council meeting of March 21, 2016.
The Library  is now facing a budget cut of $125,000 for 2016.  According to, "Mayor Judah Zeigler stressed that the spending plan, which is set to raise property taxes on a home assessed at the borough average of $432,634 by $70 and represents a 1.75 percent increase from last year, was not final and will likely reach the state's 2 percent cap on budget increases before a public hearing and adoption scheduled for May 2."
