As a long time resident of Ridgewood my observation is that we are sinking fast and no one is working to save things. The value of my house since 2005 has gone down and overall high end values have been reduced 10-30%. Real numbers we paid 2.5m in 2005 rebuilt the entire house for an added cost of almost 1m and recently appraised at 1.7m and can’t sell it. This when taxes have gone from 27k to over 40k. The schools have eroded, the village is in shabby shape in many places, the commute to NYC assuming a village resident can get a parking spot after 6:45am is awful requiring a dreaded switch (no direct trains).
Really a shame and a study in how weak and inexperienced leadership can really drive down a community. We keep electing lightweights to village, school, and other positions and expect change.
Look for my house. Is is one of many with a for sale sign out front. Real sad but really time to go

Reader says We actually need an emergency cost reduction plan for the next 18 to 24 months

We actually need an emergency cost reduction plan for the next 18 to 24 months.lets start with suspension of all but
the most serious Utility work where police idle in front of
minor utility work on side streets for no justifiable reason ,
when PSEG can be tasked on 90days notice to provide
OWN employee flag workers OR SUBS to protect the work site.
Let PSEG PAY THEIR PENSIONS AND Benefits .
For major wire or street closure or main Avenue Gas projects then let’s
focus the town police use where needed for those major
risks along with PSEG flaggers.
People we have to begin to get our house In order.
TOWN SPENDING IS OUT OF CONTROL.Day of reckoning ahead. People selling and moving out all around us…
