  1. Given reduced schedule, what kind of budget reductions are we looking at this year? Ditto for schools.

  2. $0.00

  3. Ha! I’ve lived in Ridgewood for a very long time, and I’ve never seen any department reduce their budget because services were interrupted or stopped. They just find something else to do with the money. What a laugh.

  4. I wondered what that area was for, since doorside pickup is next to the door.

  5. We’re actually spending more money

  6. Kudos to the library for providing this outdoor space. It was well used following the recent power outages. Library staff provided plenty of power strips for device charging, sanitizer and wipes. All patrons wore masks. This was a welcome and needed community service. Thank you library staff for your support!

  7. It seems to me no matter what, taxpayers are being had. Library turns into charging station. Schools into zoom meetings. Yet taxpayers take it obediently. Calm like Hindu cows.
