Ridgewood NJ, cost estimates to clean-up the flood damaged artificial turf at Maple Field (owned by the Village of Ridgewood) have not yet been submitted to the Village Council for review and approval.  It is believed Village Council members will discuss this issue during their scheduled October 6 Public Work Session, and formally approve clean-up expenses at their scheduled October 13 Public Meeting.

Meanwhile, Ridgewood Board of Education members had approved expenses for clean-up of their two (2) artificial turf fields (RHS Stadium and Stevens Field) back on September 13, and both of those fields are in the process of being cleaned, with an expectation of imminent reopening.

Additionally, it has been reported that damages to Maple Field (estimated at $75k) will not be covered by insurance, although damages to the RHS Stadium field and Stevens Field ($150k) will be covered in part by insurance.  Go figure; The Ridgewood Blog supposes that the BOE has a better insurance policy!
