Ridgewood to Start Revaluation The Village of Ridgewood has recently been ordered by the Bergen County Board of Taxation to perform a revaluation for the year 2008. The process will start with the selection of a qualified revaluation company to work with the Division of Assessments. It is anticipated that the property inspections will begin in the fall of 2006. Residents will be notified in writing when the inspections start. Revaluations are required periodically to ensure the equitable distribution of the tax burden. The Village does not gain any additional revenues because of the revaluation. Ridgewood’s last revaluation was conducted in 2001.

>the fly on the wall

>the fly on the wall has just learned something interesting. The new HS principle is coming to us from a school that was classified as as “in need of improvement, Year 1” for 2004-2005 by the IL State Board of Education. This means the school failed to make AYP (adequate yearly progress) for two consecutive years. Parents have the option to transfer their kids out of that school. Looks like they had a little trouble with the No child left behind. The BOE website states “Jack Lorenz is a professional high school administrator. He has gone through al the steps from teacher, assistant principal to principal in several different high school settings. He has the experience and expertise that RHS needs right now.”
