Petition text

The state Department of Education has a plan to close the Cedar Lakes Conference Center in Ripley to help cut 7.5 percent from its budget.  The state faces a $300 M gap in its upcoming fiscal year which begins next July. 

Carolyn Rader, the Mayor of Ripley, said the news came a surprise and hopes the board will reconsider because she feels the center provides a great education tool to the state."The conference center is a wonderful resource for the state, but the board has to make some tough decisions" Liza Cordeiro from the Board of Education told the press. "We need our budget to go straight back into the classroom"

The decision is only a recommendation. The budget cut proposal still has to go through several steps before it gets final approval.
The conference center has 35 full time employees. The conference center also employees seasonal workers.

Cordeiro says the conference center costs a little more than a million dollars a year.

Please do not shut down this wonderful faciliy! For more  on this beautiful location visit http://wvde.state.wv.us/cedarlakess
