The governing body passed an ordinance Wednesday night that will essentially shore up funds to improve conditions around two bodies of water that have proved problematic in the village, particularly during and after major storms.
The Village Council appropriated a total of $422,000 for protective measures at the Ho-Ho-Kus Brook and Saddle River. The sum includes nearly $344,000 in grant money from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service, while $78,000 is taken from the municipality’s capital fund account.
