River Dell School Board Faces Tie in Presidential Vote

During the recent River Dell School Board meeting, the board experienced a tie in the election for the new president. The votes for the two nominees, Alan Feigenson and Stephanie Hartman, were evenly split, resulting in three votes each. Due to the tie, the decision was tabled to the next meeting. The board proceeded to elect a vice president, with Claudia O’Neill securing the position.

In addition to the election, the meeting included the administration of the oath of office to the newly elected board members. The superintendent, Dr. James J. Albro, provided updates on the district’s progress following a successful referendum vote on December 12th. He outlined the next steps in the process, including finalizing drawings and preparing for bidding on the projects. Emphasis was placed on the positive outcome of the referendum and the anticipated benefits for the district’s facilities and its students.

The board discussed the possibility of updating the district’s website to reflect the ongoing progress of projects from the successful referendum. Alan Feigenson suggested that the website should be kept updated regularly to inform the community about developments. The consensus was to remove outdated voting information while keeping details on the projects and updates accessible to the public.

The meeting concluded with the passing of resolutions, covering items G1 to G25, with unanimous approval from all present board members.
