Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Water has named Daniel Timmeny a former executive director with the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission to be its business manager. Timmeny replaces former Business Manager Dave Scheibner, who retired this year. As of this writing we are still not sure as to what qualifications Mr. Timmey brings to the table as to running a water company ?

Judge Friscia’s decision seemed to take the Village Council and Ridgewood Water by surprise . This is somewhat astonishing given what could be described as overwhelming evidence to the contrary .

The announcement was made Friday, a day after a NJ Superior Court judge ruled against the village of Ridgewood in a lawsuit, finding that it had approved “capricious” and “unreasonable” rate hikes between 2010 and 2012.

The rate hikes eventually totaled a 31 percent increase , but this is New Jersey and I guess there is an assumed BS story for anything.

The Village is now waiting with baited breath because a February statement of findings by the plaintiffs’ attorney, Joseph Fiorenzo, stated that overcharges for the period of January 2010 through July 2016 totaled a staggering $13.8 million.

The judge however found Ridgewood to be responsible for only for refunding overages through 2012.
