From the Superintendent's current message on the Rensselaer City School District site:
The Board of Education, Budget Advisory Committee and the administration have been working long hours on preparing a budget for the 2009-2010 school year. As you are aware, resources are tight in this economy and so it has been a challenging year. ... The Budget Vote is scheduled for Tuesday, May 19, 2009 in the foyer of the auditorium with the polls open from 12:00 noon until 9:00 p.m.
North End Neighborhood Association meetings are held in the basement meeting room of the First Baptist Church at 1101 Washington Ave, Rensselaer, NY. The Association covers the 8th and 9th Wards (represented by Rich Mooney and Pat Jackson).
