Re: “The problem is the pop up sites that sometimes are pornographic and violent. “

I work on computers every day for most of the day and also spend the usual computer/device time when not working.
I DO NOT get pornographic pop-ups.

If you are getting pornographic pop-ups it is because you have been visiting pornographic websites.

Ridgewood Nj, The Village of Ridgewood presented a $47.1 million municipal budget last Wednesday night during a presentation by the Village Manager Roberta Sonenfeld and council members.

The new budget includes a 1.2 percent tax increase which acording to the Ridgewood news , is equal to $46.72 on a home assessed at the village average of $690,662, plus another $9 for the library tax. (https://www.northjersey.com/news/ridgewood-council-goes-all-in-on-budget-1.1320392 )

The news also reported roughly $3.03 million in surplus is being utilized in this year’s budget; the amount of surplus left over will be slightly higher than 2014, with $1.5 million remaining while outstanding debt will also decrease by about $2 million.

Village Manager Roberta Sonenfeld continued to emphasize on operating efficiencies, resident service improvements, and investments in both people and technology.

Most notable are long over due investments in the chronically dysfunctional Building Department, and the launch of a new village website. The Building department as previously announced on this blog has also raised fees and offered an Amnesty for non compilers.

The Village manager also illuminated the implementation of a Human Resources Department, enhanced support for the Community Center, staff development initiatives, re-accreditation of the Ridgewood Police Department, and a cleanup of tree wells and other aesthetical improvements. (https://www.northjersey.com/news/ridgewood-council-goes-all-in-on-budget-1.1320392 ) . The jury is still out as to whether any of these will lead to cost savings , productivity improvements or better customer service.

Restaurant review: The Park West Tavern

Restaurant review:The Park West Tavern

The Record

Surprise! Some of Ridgewood’s most satisfying fine-dining fare can now be found in a place that calls itself a tavern.

The Park West Tavern is a place where you can expect more that just a bucket of Buffalo wings with your beer.

OK, maybe it’s not a total surprise. When Park West Tavern opened three years ago, serving up its flavorful burgers with house-made ketchup, it was clear that it was not your average bar. The owners, who are also behind the well-regarded Park Steakhouse in Park Ridge, thought Ridgewood needed a restaurant with an upscale but still laid-back atmosphere, a benchmark bar and a familiar American menu with chef touches: I rated it 2.5 stars.
