  1. It’s Pee Wees’s Playhouse
    By far the best Mayor RIDGEWOOD and council we have ever had, so many great changes have been made in RIDGEWOOD!

  2. How much more money are we going to pay to the guy with the least impressive CV in history?

  3. This Village Council is awful and all they care about is putting money into a baseball field next to a historic house. They are working like gang buster behind the scenes to make sure this is a priority and they are counting on the fact that most of Ridgewood either doesn’t know or doesn’t care. This is wrong on so many levels. Special interests are the name of the game, literally!

  4. Just realized that Peter Primavera’s update presentation was likely moved from a June agenda to a July agenda in the hopes that more taxpayers are out of touch (away on vacation) in July than in June.

  5. The residents should start to demand an accounting of what is going on with taxpayer dollars. I give Rorick Halaby credit because he brings this up at almost every council meeting that there should be a special meeting to go through the line items. right now it is smoke and mirrors, which is exactly what the majority block is hoping for so the taxpayers that they are supposed to represent don’t know how they are catering to the special interest groups like sporting groups and CBD.

  6. The residents don’t care…

    They are RICH and STUPID

  7. Unfortunately this will be the usual sh*tshow that it is every time. Plus the fact that the historical consultant will come back to ask for additional monies (no surprise) and of course will be awarded additional monies as the giant ball field is the only thing that this majority block council cares about. They must have made some lofty promises, but I will be there is more corruption and collusion going on than we even are aware of. Can you say, pay to play?
