Ridgewood NJ, yesterday on Columbus day a resident reported that they were approached by a uniformed “officer” (unknown whether police or parking) who told them that payment for parking was necessary today, Columbus Day. however according to Section 265- 1B of the Village Code it clearly states that Columbus Day is a holiday with respect to parking rates.  That means free parking.

This of course begs the question: Were there any summonses issued for either overtime parking or failure to pay? If so, will all of these summonses be voided without the necessity for recipients to appear in court, or to visit the municipal court office? And, if payment is received for an unlawfully issued summons, will monies be returned?

  1. They need every quarter they can grab, by hook or by crook, to pay for the unneeded garage.

  2. Remember what the Jiffy Park manager told Kramer – “You got a problem with that? Take it up with Consumer Affairs.”

  3. I work in the CBD (luckily we have our own lot). Yesterday, Columbus Day, many customers in our store complained that the parking kiosk was broken!! Let’s build that “necessary” garage! HA HA!!
