THE RECORD

RIDGEWOOD — For a second successive year, village property owners are likely to see no increase in their annual municipal taxes.

When it meets Wednesday night, the Village Council is expected to introduce a $46.4 million 2014 spending plan that once again keeps taxes flat.

During a budget session on Monday, Village Manager Roberta Sonenfeld said those living in homes with an average assessed value of $688,000 will pay $3,959 in taxes to support municipal services during this calendar year.

But Sonenfeld — recently installed as Ridgewood’s top administrator — stressed “longer-term conversations” need to happen to cut future operating costs while improving government services.

Sonenfeld said she cut as much from the budget as possible and that sweeping structural shifts were needed going forward.

The 2014 budget, she noted, includes expenses from 2013 not initially outlined in the budget adopted by the council a year ago.
