Week Ahead: BOE Meeting Cancelled, Outdoor Evening Events Continue

Here’s a look at just some of what’s going on in Fort Lee this week.

If your plans Monday evening included attending the ’s regular business meeting, you’ll want to think again. In case you missed it, school officials late last week that the meeting originally scheduled for Monday had been pushed back a week to Monday, July 30 at 8 p.m. in the library.

School officials also announced earlier in the week that the school board meetings for the rest of the summer and continuing through September would because air conditioning is being installed at the high school’s auditorium, where the meetings are usually held.

Business Administrator Cheryl Balletto on construction and repair work from the more $30 million referendum voters approved in January. Included in her update was the auditorium air conditioning project, and she said all of the work—a total of about half of the referendum projects—should be done by the time school reopens on Sept. 10.

The meetings affected by the temporary shift to the library are those on Aug. 13, Aug. 27, Sept. 10 and Sept. 24, in addition to the meeting rescheduled for July 30.

Typical for the summer months, it’s also a light week for local government meetings; the only one scheduled is that of the Fort Lee Zoning Board of Adjustment on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in ’s council chambers.

The agenda for the Zoning Board's meeting can be downloaded here or from the borough’s website.

If you're looking to get outdoors on a summer's eve, there are several opportunities to do so this week—and for free—in Fort Lee.

The Hudson Shakespeare Company returns to Tuesday for an encore performance of the second of three summer offerings in its 21st annual Shakespeare in the Park series.

The company’s version of “Comedy of Errors” puts a semi-modern twist on the play; it’s set in 1940s-era New York and has “a Looney Tunes edge,” according to Hudson Shakespeare.

For a full description of the play, which is free and takes place Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the park on Palisade Avenue, .

The ’s free features Rockers Live this week from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

Organizers describe the show as follows:

The dynamic rock tribute show will thrill any audience with performances by the sound-a-like and look-a-like entertainers singing the songs of Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger, Stevie Nicks and Jimmy Buffett.

And on Saturday, The Fort Lee Film Commission’s program for this week features the music of Double Tap at 7 p.m. followed by a screening of the film The Sting (1973) at the community center.
