Ridgewood NJ, yesterday on Columbus day a resident reported that they were approached by a uniformed “officer” (unknown whether police or parking) who told them that payment for parking was necessary today, Columbus Day. however according to Section 265- 1B of the Village Code it clearly states that Columbus Day is a holiday with respect to parking rates. That means free parking.
This of course begs the question: Were there any summonses issued for either overtime parking or failure to pay? If so, will all of these summonses be voided without the necessity for recipients to appear in court, or to visit the municipal court office? And, if payment is received for an unlawfully issued summons, will monies be returned?
