  1. Hey James I’m just wondering. Does the village of Ridgewood Samet straight time and overtime bills to the state or the county. Because the village of Ridgewood response to bourbon county roads and state highways numerous times a year. And that pulls away work that needs to be done in the village. We have a loss of work power and at times they have to bring in other workers on overtime to handle certain situations.And we find it To be quite funny that one village resources or responding to Burke and county and state highways for whatever the reason is and bourbon county or the state I do not respond why is that. I found a very very interesting. At the end of the year do to be quite funny that one village resources or responding to Burke and county and state highways for whatever the reason is and bourbon county or the state do not respond why is that. I find it very very interesting. At the end of the year this is a big cost .
    Thanks taxpayer .

  2. I notice lots of drains on state highways covered with garbage car parts and dead deer carcass as well as silt from the deteriorating roads. How come the lazy NJ DOT doesn’t do their job and get off their fat asses. When there are heavy rains the roads don’t drain and cause accidents.

  3. An autocorrect comedic feast. Thanks 3:12pm!

  4. The opera post our soul totally correct, the roads are filthy. And the New Jersey State DOT is not doing much about it. Very embarrassing this is Bergen County till my god what a shame. Clean the roads up already. Thank you so very much please

  5. How come the Bergen County Road’s in the villager of Ridge Road are in terrible shape. But yet I travel on county roads throug out other towns are in better shape then where I live .can someone tell me why.Did we piss somebody off in BBergen County. From Barton County Parks, they are roads, their waterways, or in Orinda shape what the hell is going on. I think the mayor council need to have a serious meeting with Burke and county officials to discuss these issues because they are not being responsible and taking care of their responsibilities on there and it’s not the village of Ridgewood responsibility to take care of county repairs and maintenance. It’s everything including traffic control police saying drainage roads parks streams Brooks and salt it’s just getting to be ridiculous. We don’t have the means the manpower the finances to handle Bergen

    county responsibility. Other managers mayor and council have expressed their thoughts On this issue.

  6. That’s funny now that you said that I’m looking at all of bergen county roads.In Paramus they’re like brand new. But in the village right in front of my house it looks like a war zone. Ridgewood Avenue.

  7. lol nice try
