On July 25, 2012, an owner of four properties in Ridgefield Park Village (Bergen County) was ordered to execute a deed conveying one of his properties to the Village to satisfy $177,000 in “Unsafe Structure” penalties that the Ridgefield Municipal Court ordered him to pay.  The owner appealed.  Today, the Appellate Division, in a ruling on-line here, affirmed the ruling.
