Reader says Every taxpayer in town should read the Tiger Team report

The Tiger Team may have finished what they were asked to do. You may not appreciate what those people did for the Village. But, I do, as do most people I know in Ridgewood.

Fortunately, their recommendations were documented in their report, which the Village Council has and should be using as a road map to guide their efforts to reduce village expenses, improve municipal operational efficiency, reduce property taxes and preserve municipal jobs. Ken Gabbert has demonstrated that he is unable or unwilling to focus on these things and the Village Council needs help.

Every taxpayer in town should read their report. I was shocked by it. People may have differing opinions about some elements of the recommendations presented. But, we can all be in agreement that the facts are scary and we cannot continue with “business as usual” in the operation of Ridgewood. We need immediate long-term structural changes to some of our departments and to our union contracts.

  1. The village budget pales in comparison to the school budget. Keep your eye on the prize.
