Reader says , “Meter rates will be too high, the majority of retail businesses in town will suffer “

parkmobile_meter

Everyone should be focused on the rates required in the future to pay the debt service on the garage. Meter rates will be too high, the majority of retail businesses in town will suffer only a few nearby restaurants will benefit. A pending fiscal disaster, being backstopped by residents.
The 2-1 YES vote did not sufficiently outline the costs of the garage. The NO voters likely considered the costs. The majority of the YES voters thought it was “free”, of would be totally self sustaining.

The increased parking fees are to pay for the new garage, pure and simple. No other explanation for them. The new parking garage is to cater to the new housing projects and restaurant owners who want the taxpayers to bail them out of their otherwise poor investments. Council never should have built the garage, shouldn’t raise our taxes and parking fees to do so and shouldn’t pander to the real estate interests.

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, the Ridgewood blog has received reports of CBD  customers being denied access with their service dog several times in several different restaurants in the village.

Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
