Village Receives Big Check From Neighbor to Aid 2013 Budget

Midland Park finally pays up $330,000 for a sewage connection to Ridgewood's Water Pollution Control (WPC) facility.

The Ridgewood budget has received a considerable boost after the village procured a $330,000 check first anticipated in 2009, Village Manager Ken Gabbert reported Wednesday night.

Village officials have long claimed the Borough of Midland Park refused to pay up after agreeing to have Ridgewood connect 61 single-family homes along Glen and Erie avenues for sanitary sewage disposal in 2009. 

Waste has been processed at the Northwest Bergen County Utilities Authority (NWBUA) plant in Waldwick.

Midland Park had been delayed in receiving a federal grant they expected to cover the costs of the project but received it several months ago.

"That revenue was carried in the 2009 budget," Gabbert said. "We didn't get it in 2009 and it was part of our difficulties going into 2010. So all the pain we had in 2010, this time we get to count it as unexpected [revenue]. It will increase our surplus in 2012 so it will help us in 2013."

Glen and Erie will be closed from July 23 through Aug 6 to finish the project.

Let's just hope that someone in the Village's Finance Department remembered to deposit the check. My property tax payments never seem to get deposited promptly.

Bank checks are automatically charged to customer's account when payment is posted by Tax Office when you BRING it there. Sometimes they even share a cup of coffee with you. Just ask for a receipt, and save with your tax records.
