  1. stop the garage. stop it now, I hope everyone speaks up/emails the VC or property taxes are going to jump [again] and parking fees will 2x-4x in next few years…

  2. Sorry pal your increase in property taxes has been due to the BOE budget not the VC budget. And all of the overdevelopment that has been approved by the prior council will surely add 100’s of kids to the school system crippling Ridgewood tax payers for all eternity

  3. So who’s going to be the village project man project manager in 2018 . ???

  4. Not having to place the school budget before the voters seems to mean that they now think they can do anything they want as there is no way to vote the budget down. That was a sneaky way to get control when all the town wanted was to save some money and get more voters out by combining the school board with a general election.

  5. 10:32 is correct Stop the Garage..epic mistake..let’s vote them all out as soon as any shovel hits that corner…pave the dam’s a slum.

  6. So the council is still not addressing the gate house lease??? Going on 3 years people!! I guess if you ignore e mails long enough they think they will go away…but they won’t!!!

  7. 2:12 I agree. It’s obviously been buried once again. The council seems to feel it will “Poof” disappear if it’s out of print. Dream on. The lack of visible action just irritates us.
