RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Ramapo officials have asked a state court to shut down an Eckerson Lane yeshiva for not building a permanent school within a required two-year timeframe, according to lohud.com.
The school opened three years ago without permits but was later granted permission from the town to use a single-family home and trailers until a permanent school was built. The school was operating under the terms of regular contractors, where it had 12 months to build under the permit, with another 12-month extension possible. But to date, Mosdos Sans Klausenberg of Monsey has failed to build the school, court papers show, said lohud.com.
Town officials are arguing in court that the school is violating the city's zoning regulations, added Lohud.com.
