THE RECORD

RIDGEWOOD — The village recently received a pair of large checks from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, totaling nearly $450,000.

The checks reimburse Ridgewood for overtime costs and damage it sustained as a result of both Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy.

Calling the infusion of cash “excellent” news, Village Manager Roberta Sonenfeld said another check would be sent to the village before the end of the year for $382,900.

Getting the reimbursements from the federal agency has not been easy.

Village officials — working with representatives from Sen. Bob Menendez’s office — have been meeting in recent months with state and federal officials to ensure the money was recouped.

  1. WOW –No complaints about Village management now are there?

  2. JJ — your North Media link here is not live — can you fix it ?
    Thanks. Dom –

  3. No complaints, but I have 2 questions if anyone knows the answers. Q#1 why so long to recoup $ ? Q#2 does anyone know what the village spent in financial resources compared to what we are recouping? That said, good job to management for following up.

  4. That almost covers Rica’s caper!

  5. Now they can afford to have more money stolen!!

  6. #4 you forgot to ask instead of a check why not payment in quarters.

  7. all towns getting some money back, it’s not just the village.

  8. Hey #1 “The checks reimburse Ridgewood for overtime costs and damage it sustained as a result of both Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy.” Those bills were submitted way before the new manager took over. The only reason were getting it now is because the Fed. Government is so slow on paying out these claims. It was not the current management that put in these claims and it certainly was not the Council. Dom you have no Idea how it works. You are just like this Council an opportunist. Go back to what you know being a court clerk in the 50s

  9. How about picking up the leaves before it flood the whole area or maybe you could have used some of that money to pick up the barricades.

  10. Hey Dom! Even a broke clock is right 2 times in a day. So just because they got a check that was going to come anyway all is forgiven .

  11. The parking meter theft is going to be the punchline here for many years to come…

  12. now they have money for ot to pick up leaves, or they will use that for down’s tree service.
