To the Editor:
Fortunately for us, Ridgefield had an additional $1 million income this year. And, fortunately for us, there was an extra $1.6 million in the Reserve Fund that could be returned to us, taxpayers. So we had $2.6 million more to spend for operating costs and stay within our means and a flat tax. But, if approved this year, we will spend that $2.6 million, plus an additional $3.6 million funded by increased property taxes.
