Rogue Village Employee(s) submit bogus Schedler development plan to State of NJ

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Mayor Susan Knudsen has publicly announced that a development plan for Schedler Park recently sent to the State of NJ’s Historic Preservation Office for approval, was submitted to the State without the review or approval of Ridgewood’s Village Council.

Specifically, the development plan included the following “extra” components, none of which were either discussed or approved by Mayor Knudsen or any other member of Ridgewood’s Village Council:

Gazebo
Several pickleball courts
Concession stand
Patio surface approximately three (3) times larger than what Council members did approve
Thus far neither Mayor Knudson nor Village Manager Heather Mailander have identified the employee(s) responsible for the bogus submission. Nor has there been any public mention of disciplinary action taken, if any.

A corrected development plan was recently submitted to the State and has reportedly already received approval.

  1. In the private sector, someone’s head would have rolled big time for such an offense.

  2. Hmmmm. I wonder who works in parks and rec? In the engineering dept?

  3. Looks like someone’s in a pickle.

  4. Great initiatives at a time when they’re discussing an extraordinary hike in taxes.

  5. That was never going to be a baseball. That was a bait and switch executed by the soccer dads.

  6. The Shits going to hit the fan real soon. The two top shitheads in these departments should be escorted out of village hall mediately. Just like the ex village manager.
    We all know who they are! Enough already, I guess they were the ones who got the rice notices. Both of them very sneaky. Talk about being cocky. In a total lack of respect for the mayor and council. Get them out now.

  7. Yes they are both very dishonest. Both of them should be extremely embarrassed. American Council need to use a broom and sweep them the hell out of town hall .

  8. I understand that they do not want to name the “Rogue Village Employee(s) but they can certainly tell us what discipline they received if any.

  9. Well All we can say is people That I’m glad we have a mayor and council that is seeing the light. These few individuals exactly know what they were doing, don’t be fooled they’re not stupid, they just sneaky and liars. And now they got caught again. This is not the first time or the second they have been many others that I’m glad we have a mayor and council that is seeing the light. These few individuals exactly know what they were doing, don’t be fooled they’re not stupid, they’re just sneaky and liars. And now they got caught again. This is not the first time or the second they have been many others incidents. They thought I was going to slide right through. That’s why this mayor and council they read each line item and see what exactly what’s going on. Maybe somebody should call the state up and have an investigation. The walk is called. Heel toe ‘. Heel toe ‘ step right out the front door.

  10. Discipline, they should be forced out the door immediately. There credibility is done . We’ll see how tuff the mayor and council are really are. Don’t come back to all of us and say that they’re just going to get a letter in their file. No way .

  11. And you pathetic pandering lemmings continue to feed the machine that is Ridgewood NJ…
    Cops , Fire and everything in between.
    Criminal municipal government.
    Criminal unions protecting the golden cow.
    really?
    how much is enough?

  15. Janet Fricke and Christopher Rutishauser should have been fired for incompetence and more literally decades ago. May this finally be their swan song. Nancy Bigos was surely involved and should get the boot as well. Good excuse to clean house.

  16. Get the 3 mentioned above out ASAP. We are lucky we have Susan and Lorraine…still not sure about the others. Michael changed his Tune and following the wrong leaders so my trust in him is gone. Regardless get the 3 who did this out

  17. Yes we all totally agree. Way too many scams going on. We think the power went to their head. They exactly new what they were doing.The mayor council must react immediately on this behavior. We guess that’s why they both received rice notices.

  18. Can you imagine my fellow taxpayers what Else these higher management Officials got away with in the past. What else did they slide through in other areas. I took the mayor council Seen these in perfections. Obviously they have no loyalty to Village of Ridgewood anymore. Give them the option to resign, or show them the door.

  19. Heather should be held accountable. If she didn’t know, why not – throw her out. If she did know and didn’t advise the Mayor, throw her out. She has lost control – have you ever seen her office, she has paper work stacked to the ceiling, no wonder why she can’t keep up and doesn’t know whats going on.

  20. Add Bigios to that list doesn’t she run parks and rec ( very poorly ) but gets the big bucks. Throw her out and I agree Heather should know what is going on too! Clean up the village employee roster!!!

  21. That’s because she was trusting them. That’s been the problem the past few years. Now that you can’t trust them, and they are not loyal to the Village of Ridgewood why keep them. So now it’s time to send them out the door. It’s time for new blood anyway.

  22. Miss Mayor it’s time to react and get rid of these two. They are both so full of shit. They are liars, and you cannot trust them anymore, no one can. They are beyond tarnished now. Whatever comes out of their mouth doesn’t mean anything .Time has come. One is the crier, and the other one is just a jerk .Everybody knows it’s no secret.

  23. Thank that we have a mayor that is smart. She’s pretty much on top of a lot of things now. She seeing the light. Susan don’t trust them. I think it’s time to open up their file you’ll be surprise when you will see. Then you would say enough is enough. I’m sure there’s more to the story than we know about.. It’s starting to stink. We cannot condone this kind of behavior anymore .By keeping these two individuals there’s gonna be a major lawsuit in the village of Ridgewood.

  24. Don’t forget Bigios. She is responsible too!

  25. Bullying tax payers. Lying about a business in Habernickel. False advertisement about a village partnership. What they did at shedler. The list must be huge over the years. Fire all 3.

  26. This mayor must do her job by removing these employees immediately. This behavior is so unacceptable , so embarrassing to the village.

  27. What the hell happened to the Village of Ridgewood. Every day there’s something else going on, it’s amazing how many screw ups that have been going on in the past few years. It obviously shows that the ones in charge just don’t have the experience and the know-how. For these individuals to be involved in illegal activity like this in government They need to be removed. And they would actually be lucky they need to be removed. And they would actually be lucky if they don’t lose their pension.

  28. The Mayor can’t unilaterally fire anyone. The Council is a governing body of equals under our form of municipal government.

  29. That’s what you think, when the orders come down from the top guess what. They have a power one way or the other. Doesn’t matter anyway, whatever comes out of your mouth who’s going to believe them now. No one.
