The village council has shown no regard for rising taxes and in fact has only acted to ensure they will continue to go up. The garage will eventually need property taxes to pay the million dollar annual gap between expense and parking revenue. With high density housing our schools will be overloaded forever and that budget will only grow by large numbers. $15 min wage will crush all CBD businesses and that will lower tax receipts there, a gap higher local property taxes will have to cover. As housing sales on the highest property tax homes in town see price erosion the lower assessments will get covered by…higher local property taxes. Meanwhile, the village spends like fools and hikes fees everywhere.

  1. Taxes will never go down. Don’t want anybody bullshit you. How can They.

  2. As long as they keep praising and promoting corrupt officials, how can you be sure that they are not getting kick bacha?

  3. It’s fun to be Rich and Stupid!!

  4. I would hope they are not getting kickbacks but that may be the only logical reason for our council members’s continuous ignoring of financial facts and rush to spend on as much as they can find to waste money. They all are intelligent enough to realize that they are agreeing to spend far more the the budget can handle. It may be–as someone has said before–a real case of “follow the money”. They charge ahead without any consideration of all the pleas to “stop and think”, look at the REAL cost, not what the developers say will happen”. etc, etc. If they still actively believe that their will be “little or no” expansion in the school population..with the addition of all these dwellings–let them pay for the huge additional costs!!

  5. Please stop with the “they must be getting kickbacks”.
    There is a good reason government spending never goes down.
    It’s because the voters love spending.
    If a candidate ran on a campaign of lowering taxes he would lose, because there would be a drumbeat of he wants to cut this, he wants to cut that.

    Josh Gottheimer ran on lowering taxes and he won.

  7. he did a great job lowering taxes lol

  8. John won because he is a Democrat. There is only one (R) left in NJ.
    Suicide is nearly complete.

  9. “If a candidate ran on a campaign of lowering taxes he would lose,” Your words Ridgewood Taxpayer.
