Ridgewood NJ, By a 3-1 vote during Wednesday night’s Village Council Work Session, Council members rebuffed calls (no pun intended) for allowing public comments to be made remotely during their open public meetings.
Numerous weak excuses (sorry; we call them as we see them) were provided by Mayor Susan Knudsen, most notably monetary concerns.
Sorry fellow taxpayers. The Council just doesn’t want to hear from you unless you’re willing to expose yourself to COVID-19 and show up at the meeting room (sometimes crowded with unmasked & unvaccinated individuals) in person.
Absolute insanity prevails . . .
