On Tuesday, October 16, 2012 Mayor Frank Huttle III hosted a presentation by Raphael J. Caprio, Phd. entitled, The Financial Tsunami Facing New Jersey's Municipalities. It was all about how New Jersey municipalities are basically broke and must learn to spend more wisely. At this meeting, the Mayor informed Englewood Residents that our Master Plan of 2009 was stale. He continued on to inform us that he has the answer. To that end, he has used our tax dollars to hire another set of consultants to devise HIS Master Plan for our fair city. We arrived with our opinions and he gave us our FACTS. It is important to note here that no one took advantage of the privilege of the floor that was offered when his power point presentation was over. There was no need. He had already given us our facts.
