Your council (not) at work

This is the time of the year when I update the 07020.com calendar with meeting schedules, which I have done since 2005. I was stunned by the number of months, five, which have only one council meeting. Historically, only July and August had one meeting. Now, we're at June through September, plus November.

Given that the council's sole job is to keep its chairs warm -- one member doesn't even manage that -- this doesn't come as a surprise. I expect them to eventually be at one meeting per month like some similarly-afflicted towns, with members claiming it's more efficient.

If you are aware of waste or mismanagement at any level of New Jersey
government, the NJ State Comptroller wants to hear from you.

Edgewater's governing body no longer feel the need to hide that they are not doing the people's work. They do little if anything in public, decisions are made behind closed doors. EDGEWATER functions more like a fascist government than part of a democratic nation.
