The budget pain just keeps getting worse for Montclair. First, its residents were hit with a school spending plan that cuts 82 positions from classes, administration and after-school activities. On Tuesday, they got the bad news about the municipal budget.

Montclair faces a $5.1 million gap and, to close it, the township manager has drafted a plan that–hold on to your seats–would raise taxes 11%. According to the Star Ledger, the budget would cut 13 employees and more than $1 million in funding for programs such as pre-k classes, libraries, the Montclair Arts Council, outdoor concerts, the Fourth of July parade and First Night.
