Ridgewood NJ, Simply stated , every action has a reaction. You act, and there are reactions. Your actions have reactions or consequences because you, as every human being, don’t live in a void.

There seems to be many of residents that are unhappy with many of the current spending proposals by the Village Council .

The sad fact remains that once the building of 4 high density housing proposals, were approved during the “Reign of Terror ” or the Paul Aronsohn regime ,a lot of new spending is now required .

The Village is going to have a much higher density , congestion and kids in schools .

Because of the “high density housing projects in the CBD :

Parking needs to be increased, water infrastructure needs to be improved roads and signals need to be improved ,school construction, public safety and emergency services need to be expanded .

This is required ,its not vanity ,like the “traffic easing” or “suicide bike lanes” . Many, many Village Councils into the future will be dealing with theses same issues.

RIDGEWOOD MAILBOX TAMPERING AND PAYMENT OF BILLS

Ridgewood NJ, As you may know, several of the mailboxes in the Central Business District, in and around the area of the Post Office, were forcibly broken into, with the thieves taking all of the mail in the boxes.  It is best if you double check with your billing companies to be sure that they have received your payments, as some of the bills and payment checks that you put into these mailboxes may have been stolen.

The Post Office has indicated that the mailboxes which were forcibly broken into will be replaced with higher security mailboxes, sometime in the future.
