Reader says ,”The council has quietly passed the ordinance without consulting any salon or spa”

It is unfortunate that the salons and spas were targeted. The council has quietly passed the ordinance without consulting any salon or spa, many owners in town have been open for decades too and could have been a valuable resource for this ordinance. The Ridgewood Guild and her Chamber of Commerce were not notified that this was on the calendar to discuss at a meeting either. The state inspects and a fee is paid for that inspection. Charging $150 for a duplicate regulation inspection is too much. It is expensive. What about the barber shoe and threading bars that have one person working all day ? 150 is not acceptable. A salon may have 11 chairs but 3 employees. When asked, the mayor, the council and the inspector could not (would not?) answer how many calls they get a year specific to the salons and spas, that were actual complaints. When asked, the mayor, the council and the inspector could not (would not?) answer what their actual cost would be to inspect a salon or spa. The fee that they came up with was dependent on what they see other towns like HACKENSACK doing. Although Fair Lawn has this fee and charges $35-$50. This ordinance needs to be amended.

  1. This counselor thinks they can do whatever they want to do. Not

  2. Any reviews? Which place offers happy ending? My friend who owns a football team wants to know

  3. Satin Dolls should renovate the old Town Garage. Would help the salons lower the average age of their clientele.

  4. I hear sone of the spas are serving happy endings?

  5. That license could be as much as a day’s, or even two’s profits for some of these places. If Ridgewood is so money hungry they would collect a lot more if they had someone who actually KNOWS FINANCES go through the expenditures that the council makes and cut the huge amount of fat. Our council seems to think that the average person in town has a multi-hundreds or millions of dollars income. WRONG! Are they copying Trump’s cohorts who just assumed that the people to whom they refused to give their just salaries could just take out a loan, or ask the grocery stores, etc. to give them enough food and necessities to tide them over? Our council and School Board both seem to live mentally in that kind of pure stupidity, as if money actually did grow on trees. When there are tons of empty houses we can all know the reason–even though they can use the famous Trump phrase: ” I really know nothing about that.” Also his other famous phrase:”fake news”.

  6. How did you think the garage would be paid for. Nickle and diming residents, merchants and commuters. Bullying the boe. They are in many ways worse than the three amigos. Perhaps we should have voted for ms harwin and willet

  7. Shame that James and his posse won’t call out this Council with nary a negative comment about Knudsen, Sedon, Walsh and friends. Wonder why?

  8. Wow Trump derangement syndrom is real
