>Village Council Debates Spending $129K for yet ANOTHER Habernickel Park Study

During last night’s Village Council Work Session, Mayor David Pfund, Councilman Jacques Harlow, and Councilwoman Kim Ringler-Shagin each expressed their personal dissatisfaction with a request by Ridgewood Parks and Recreation Director Timothy Cronin to allocate $129K in capital funds for a “Habernickel Park Development Plan.”

Deputy Mayor Betty G. Wiest was the only member of Council to defend Cronin’s request. Councilman Patrick Mancuso offered no opinion on the issue.

Pfund, Ringler-Shagin, and Harlow all publicly chastised Cronin each saying that “enough was enough” with respect to the continued engagement of expensive consultants in connection with developing plans to transform Habernickel into multi-use recreational facility.

Further discussion of Cronin’s request is scheduled to take place at a future Council Work Session.
