For special events.

The Village of Ridgewood is a one of the few municipalities in Bergen County that uses parking meters to regulate our bustling downtown area's parking spaces. Due to Village Ordinances, it is a violation to park any vehicle for longer than the time specified by ordinance at any given parking space. Doing so constitutes “overtime parking” or “repeat parking” and vehicles in violation of these ordinances may receive a parking summons for the offense.
In recognition of events, or incidents, where someone may need to park a vehicle in a metered spot for longer then permitted by ordinance, permits are available to "rent" the space for a period of time.
