In 1955, at Chester School, the new school budget of $180,026.50 passed, up almost $48,000 over the previous year’s appropriations. Local taxes would be increased a total of $38,000 to pay for the new budget. The lion’s share of the increase was attributed to increased transportation costs. Source: The Mendham-Chester Tribune.
