RIDGEWOOD — A citizens committee could soon be formed to provide financial and budget advice to the Village Council, according to officials.
Mayor Paul Aronsohn has given the council an outline of the possible duties and expectations of an advisory committee.
The panel would comprise seven residents with backgrounds in business, as well as a member of the Village Council and possibly one from the Board of Education. It would meet monthly and provide its insights and recommendations throughout the year as issues arise and as the council deems needed.
