WE, THE RESIDENTS OF WOODCLIFF LAKE are disappointed in the actions taken by our elected officials and recreation department. The existing tennis program has been terminated and officials have unfairly dismissed Bill Howley from his position. These actions have been justified as a consolidation of some spring and summer programs under the guise of cost savings.
Without an independent tennis program with Bill Howley at the helm, the quality of the tennis program will decline with the people of Woodcliff Lake bearing the loss.
The clinic has been enjoyed by over 2,500 residents, families and friends and is widely considered to be one of the best town tennis programs in Bergen County, if not the State. It is one of the few things that distinguish us from neighboring towns. The clinic provides residents with a quality, inexpensive tennis experience. Taught by certified professional instructors, it is technically exacting, friendly, convenient, and directed by a well-liked and highly-regarded resident. It has withstood the test of time and certainly should not be eliminated and replaced by an unknown entity.
Bill Howley has been a responsible member of the recreation program, taking care of our courts and running our tennis clinic for 30 years. No one has done more to safeguard the well-being of our tennis courts and insure that they were well maintained throughout the same time. Bill Howley’s high-quality work and unwavering dedication are a bargain for Woodcliff Lake at only $10.00 per day; he is worth every single penny. Bill is a valuable contribution to the community that should not be removed in order to save a few dollars.
We petition to reinstate the Tennis Clinic, and to reinstate Bill Howley as tennis court supervisor. He is an asset to Woodcliff Lake, not a liability.
