Ridgewood Street-Fight - My9 New Jersey

Ridgewood Street-Fight

Posted: Updated:
Ridgewood, New Jersey (My9News) - Halfway through 2014, the Ridgewood Village Council still can’t agree on the yearly budget that includes $1.5 million allocated for paving local roads. Mayor Paul Aronsohn and supporters of the move to pave dozens of Ridgewood roads as soon as possible have now pulled it from the overall budget agenda and put it to a separate vote, only to have it struck down last week.

"Street paving is a big issue in Ridgewood, one that has both public safety and quality of life implications. That is why our Village Manager pulled it out for a separate vote,” Mayor Aronsohn said.

Many roads in Ridgewood are in fact cracked and bumpy and in really bad shape. Even though the town made a huge effort to fill potholes this spring, big ditches are still plaguing the roadways near the train station and on residential roads like the intersection of S. Pleasant Street and Albert Place.

Long-time Ridgewood resident, Trudy, who lives on Grove Street, said that a couple years back when the town failed to pave on schedule, vibrations from cars hitting the unpaved, potholed street in front of her house actually broke her window.

“The house was vibrating and then I realized it was from the potholes,” she said.

In the end, the council voted yes and the plan to pave finally passed through. Now, the process of remediating of the roads will start immediately.
