NEW CITY — The Town of Ramapo was scheduled to face a judge on Tuesday to request a school in Monsey be temporarily shut down for safety reasons.

Last wee,k building and fire inspectors found several violations, including exposed electrical wires, holes in the floor, desks blocking doorways, among other things inside a school on Route 306 in Monsey. When the school failed to address the violations, the town filed a summons in Rockland County court, notifying the school to appear in court on Feb. 13.

However, school officials contacted the town supervisor and said the violations have been resolved. Building and fire inspectors appeared on site and found that the school resolved all but two of the violations that had been addressed.

According to the Town of Ramapo, inspectors are expected to return to the school on Tuesday. If everything is resolved, the town will no longer need to face a judge.
