Ridgewood NJ, Northjersey.com has reported that .,”Ridgewood Water says its water supply is safe after catching a contractor dumping contaminated soil on its Wyckoff property.”

Northjersey goes to state in the article that , “A utility employee saw a local contractor on Aug. 20 dumping between four and six loads of soil at the Ames wellfield. According to a statement by Ridgewood Water, the Wyckoff Police Department was immediately notified and is investigating. At the same time, the Ames well was shut down as a precaution.” Interesting when the Ridgewood blog checked the Wyckoff Police blotter , there was no mention of the incident on that or any other date and when we went to the Ridgewood Water website it was off line on September 27th in the evening .We do know how that feels but it seemed an odd coincidence .

Assemblyman Christopher DePhillips , “When you pass a budget where we had 18 new tax increases built into that budget, you scare the daylights out of people,”

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Wyckoff NJ, Assemblyman Christopher DePhillips joined Jill Horner on Comcast’s Newsmakers last week to discuss capping state spending each year at the same 2 percent placed on local government tax levies.

“The towns have been largely living within the two percent cap without a problem,” DePhillips (R-Bergen) explained to Horner. “I think it would be hypocritical for us not to do this when we are imposing the same requirement on towns.”
