  1. Raise the price of something and people will buy less of it.
    Should be interesting when prices increase again in an “attempt” to pay for the parking deck.

  2. But, but, but . . . didn’t we need more parking becuase there is no where to park and shop in the downtown??
    Face it, the regimes of Aronson / Pucciarelli and Knudsen / Hache sold off our downtown to developers. The costs of an overcrowded downtown, the needs for improvements for the hundreds of new families, the needs for more school rooms and teachers, more police and fire fighters, etc. etc., are all being placed on the backs of the taxpayers by these politicians.
    We didn’t need parking and hundreds of apartments to “save” our downtown. Our downtown businesses needed to modernize with the times and appreciate the market forces around them in order to save themselves.
    Our council needed to take a firm stance in the courts, with the legislature and in all other ways possible against overdevelopment and the destruction of schools, our property values and other attributes. Instead, they chose to pander to a few special interests, tear down paradise and put up a parking lot and leave us all with the tax bill.

  3. Go ahead and build that garage.

  4. define a rats ass..they don’t give into that business concern..or any of the Taxpayers families challenges for that matter..elections are over ..kneel to the Man…

  5. To the second poster from the top. 100% true, SAD but true.
    James, there should be a way to respond to someone by referring their post time like in the previous blog.

  6. People they don’t give two shits about you and I the taxpayer. The village is gone, waiting until they build the parking garage, the condos on Broad Street, condos on Franklin Avenue . Forgot about driving through town you’ll be walking because the traffic is gonna look like Hackensack in July. Years ago they had a developer that wanted to put in a small hotel with banquets and parking they should’ve went that way. Because that would Bring in more business and they spend spend spend you like.

  7. What a load of horse shit! Poster number two is a liar. Aronsohn Puchiarrlli Hauck are responsible for the over development mess. The vote to adopt the high densitu ordinances was 3 – 2. Three voted yes. Knudsen and Sedon voted no.

    poster number you sound like a real douche bag!

  8. Ot was raining all day.

  9. After Knudsen and Seddon voted no, what have they done to stop the overdevelopment? Most importantly, what did they do after they were in the majority?

    Look at the facts before you spout off about nothing.

  10. I drove down Ridgewood Ave the other night.

    I counted 8 closed or shuttered stores.

  11. Knudsen and Sedon are compliant in this travesty. They were in power and did NOTHING to stop or slow down this disaster initiated by Aronshon & Co. They were not the right people, just nice neighbors but not cut for this type of job. We have never had real professionals capable of dealing with a large village. What’s worse they picked a village manager that just doesn’t cut it. It’s a pity but beyond the point of no return. America as a whole is deteriorating based on what we see on a daily basis. Being in a blue leftist state doesn’t help either.
