  1. So, we are not going over the cap? No vote?

  2. $102mn??? Just because there is a 2% cap doesn’t mean you need to raise by 2% every year, how about cutting by 2%?

  3. No raising the cap and they can afford all day K?

    Will the new tracher contract affect the cap? Are we stalling till after the vote?

  4. HA ! Ha! you people don’t get it do you…YOU’VE BEEN HAD.
    Think about that…absolutely criminal.

  5. At a minimum Half a percent should have been rolled back just on energy cost spend savings rather than gobbled up by some feel good happy crap programs ..feed the Dolphins in Cambodia etc

  6. Plundering of the Ridgewood Purse has become a national competition,..
    Hey we are all wall street fat cats..ripe for a good cleaning out by the Union teachers. What do they do in that admin buiding on cottage place besides park expensive cars and read free health care brochures at free meters all day.

  7. 3:07 – you may have hit the nail on the head! LOL good question – I don’t think half the admins are even needed

  8. $102mn for BoE and $47mn for municipal budget… $150mn from a Village of 25,000 residents, this is just insane. We also have debt and long term health & pension liabilities to pay for… People, wake up!!!
