  3. Ridgewood paid a fortune to have its municipal building overlooking a lake. Looks just like Switzerland if Switzerland had been done in bad taste.

  4. Didn’t the floodwall work in Village Hall. Did they receive water in the basement again ground floor

  5. The village manager reported this evening that 4 inches of water enter the ground level of village hall.

  6. If Mother Nature wants in, you cannot keep her out.

  7. I would say then we got pretty lucky with only 4 inches of ground level. Considering that building is a 100 years old in a flood zone.
