3480 – Bond Ordinance – Pre-construction Funding for Hudson Street Parking Garage ($500,000)

Ridgewood NJ, The Village Council approved the $500K “preliminary” expense by a 4-1 vote with Knudsen being the only “no.”

Wording for the “bogus” non-binding referendum passed unanimously.  Expect property taxes to jump as a result.  There is no way in the world parking utility revenues will ever be able to completely pay off the principal and interest on a $15 million bond.

  1. I thought we were still “discussing” and “voting” on this….

    I guess even the appearance of serving the people is too much work for the three Amigos

  2. The “Council Majority” has already stated that they will move forward with the parking garage regardless of the referendum vote outcome, so why are we wasting the money associated with the bogus referendum?

  3. Don’t panic folks, this starts the process moving forward, there will be plenty discusses, alternative cost designs and technical qualified advice I’m sure.
    It will work out with plenty advice along the way.

  4. Good question. Better question to ask is how and when we can run them out of town. I am completely fed up with this trio taking care of their buddies and having little thought for the rest of this village. Its not fair to call them corrupt, but it sure smells that way. I see a long line of cronies buzzing around the Mayor. Where there is smoke, there is fire.

  5. I guess he couldn’t or wouldn’t answer Mr. Loving question on conflict of interest at last night meeting .

  6. Well, Paul, you know what your conflict is and others do too. Do you think we are stupid?

    Don’t panic folks, this starts the DEVELOPMENT process moving forward, there will be plenty discusses (sic), alternative cost designs and technical qualified advice ON HOW TO PROCEED WITH BUILDING THE GARAGE, I’m sure.
    It will work out FOR ME AND MY BUDDIES with plenty advice (sic) ON HOW BEST TO LINE MY POCKETS along the way.
